With a 98% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes, King of Kong is a must-see film. Critics call it "improbably compelling, stupendously and wildly entertaining, madly arresting, hilarious and moving, taught, tense, fascinating, rousing, and laugh-out-loud funny."
As Decius said, it's pretty much about how everything everywhere actually works. I saw this on the festival circuit earlier this year; it won the best documentary award at IFF Boston.
Long-time readers of MemeStreams may recall our coverage of Steve Wiebe's new record back in 2003, courtesy of nox. You can still read the article through the Wayback machine:

If there's one thing to know about Billy Mitchell, it's that he does not disappoint.
