The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters

Documentary Biography


 

Diehard video game fans compete to break World Records on classic arcade games.

While the premise might not appeal to all, "The King of Kong" goes much further than exploring a simple video game; it's about competition at a world class level. It's arrogant Billy Mitchell, a messiah of the arcade world with many disciples - at his whim against Steve Wiebe, an innocent family man craving to be number one. It's this rivalry, unique characters and a welcome insight into the world of freaks and geeks that makes this a documentary of the highest level.
