**Includes some minor spoilers. will not spoil your experience**
I watched the documentary last night and was just simply blown away about the people, their life-philosophy and the motivation to push forward and create something new.
In one scene one of the protagonists told that "he would never want to work for EA or Epic cause he would lose his freedom of creativity in it".
This in essence is what makes Artists great - they create something new and do it so well that it transcends the normal standard of standardized "materialistic" work processes - by far.
It was interesting to see how the video game gurus in this documentary were actually even sad for people not understanding their work. In essence - they were disappointed for people doing shallow reviews after testing their games.
Deep understanding of others creative work often springs into criticism - but thats only positive since it means that the other one has understood the creation and is able to add something new into it - thus being part of the logics of progress.
9.5/10 for the best documentary/movie I have seen this year.
