An absolute classic
14 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie stands alone in its field. Literally. That is, I know of *no* other movie *in* this field. How many sorting movies are there? How many computer science movies are there? Just this one, as far as I know. Perhaps I've missed some somewhere.

I remember watching this movie multiple times when I was on college back in the early '80's; we enjoyed it enough that we'd take any occasion to see it, even sneaking into other classes when it was being shown. In addition to being a superb visual aid to understanding sorting algorithms, it has a delightful dry sense of humor, most clearly in evidence in the climactic finish (which I won't give away).
