Weird documentary. kind of... sort of...
It starts off as a documentary about pinball machines and the rise of the video game. Especially focused on the game 'Defender'. A rockabilly type of guy explains his love for Pinball machines and another fan walks around a room that must be the wet dream of every pinball-lover out there. Then it cuts to a guy playing defender and explaining how it works. They also show you a couple of classic arcade machines. So you would think that videogames would mark the end of an era for the pinball machines and that the documentary would go in this direction. Wrong. They keep switching between pinball machines and arcade machines until the artwork on both machines come alive (through the wonders of animation) and start battling each other through the city of London. So you have an Egyptian Horus (straight of a pinball machine) fighting a space invader. And another warrior-girl throws pinballs to destroy a space invader. And then something amazing happens to the rockabilly pinball-lover. I can't explain it and i won't. You just have to see it to believe it. I was totally flabbergasted and so was the friend who showed me the documentary who was under the impression it was a time piece documentary on aracadegames. But it was so much more. It turned into a unbelievable trip. Go watch it... NOW.
