Indie Game: The Movie

You don’t have to be a gamer to get sucked into this fascinating documentary peek at the world of independent video game development — this viewer certainly isn’t. It doesn’t really matter; Indie Game is less about pixels and controllers than it is about creativity and accomplishment. Directors Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky tell the parallel stories of two potentially successful games, but they’re more interested in the people behind them, and they luck out with a trio of intriguing characters, all possessing questionable social skills but an undeniable passion for the form. Intelligent, witty, and a lot of fun.
