I’ve watched a few movies lately that are perfect fits for my personality. I’ll list them below. If you know of other similar movies I should check out, hook me up.
1. King of Kong: The story of a guy who attempts to set the world record at Donkey Kong. It gets into arcade game culture, the rivalries, the politics, the work, and the strategy involved in being the best.
2. Man on Wire: This documentary tells the story of the world’s most daring guerrilla tightrope walker. It gets into why he does what he does, what’s involved in pulling off the stunts, and the motivations of the people who help him pull it all together.
3. Surfwise: This is documentary about a doctor who travels North America in an RV with his family of 9 children in search of the perfect life and great waves. He’s countercultural to the extreme, with many faults, but someone who’s figured out what he likes and goes for it.
Have any recs?
BTW, the above flicks are all available through Netflix.
