I’m using this holiday time to clear through some old links I set aside and never visited. One of them pointed me to the 1982 short film Arcade Attack. It starts off as a documentary about the rise of video games and the glory of classic pinball, and then, well, it gets weirder. Much much weirder. You can watch it online: Part I, Part II.
I don’t want to give too much away… Give yourself the 20 minutes or so it takes to complete. Don’t let the clunkiness and slowness of the filmmaking deter you — STICK WITH IT.
