Very interesting film making, loved it!
2 May 2019 | by csmvtSee all my reviews

I was in Calgary over the weekend and saw Foosballers at the CUFF film festival. I don't really know what I was expecting, but loved to play when young so was drawn to it. I was completely blown away. The film briefly covers the history of the sport and how huge it was in the 70's and 80's prior to the Pac Man and Donkey Kong invasion. There were World Championships with $1M purses and a new Porsche to the champ. The director then dug up some old champs for some touching nostalgic perspective and connected with the latest stars of the sport to follow them leading up to the recent World Championship in Kentucky. The film transitions to the tournament with some great backstory and I was totally invested. I won't spoil anything, but will say an old champ from back in the day and a young stud brought the film to a fitting climax. I know nothing about film making...but the music, production value and fly on the wall perspective were incredible throughout. Highly recommended.
