Set over the course of a weekend tournament for chess software programmers thirty-some years ago, COMPUTER CHESS transports viewers to a nostalgic moment when the contest between technology and the human spirit seemed a little more up for grabs. We get to know the eccentric geniuses possessed with the vision to teach a metal box to defeat man, literally, at his own game, laying the groundwork for artificial intelligence as we know it and will come to know it in the future.

I was no less than happily surprised with this one... It's been some good minutes after I've seen it and I'm still thinking about it! It's worth mentioning that Bujalski's option for old cameras fits perfectly the constant underlying feel that the movie beams towards the viewers... I'll definitely check this out again.
