Talented filmmaker makes a valiant attempt
28 June 2018 | by Maxwell_KennedySee all my reviews

All work all Play is not a riveting story. It is a success however. To date it is one of the few docs to get on Netflix, which is good for esports fans. More is always better. The best parts of the film follow Michal Blicharz. I also loved the opening moments of the film. A doc about esports must be hard to plot for a main stream audience. It requires a lot of explanation to get the viewer up to speed. Describing the game itself to a general audience is next to impossible but also somewhat necessary. I give these guys credit for what they did manage.
