Last night I watched the most interesting movie I’ve seen in a long while. Computer Chess directed by Andrew Bujalski.
This movie completely took me by surprise, I was expecting another ‘quirky’ movie about computer geeks that I’d probably half enjoy and half be really annoyed by as I kinda hate the whole corporate geek thing (Scott Pilgrim etc) but this film wasn’t anything like that.
I won’t give too much away, I’ll just say that it mixes complete banality with a dark and sinister malevolence and wonderful surrealism. Oh yeah, it also has a hotel room full of cats.
