Synopsis

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.

Our take

Blazing out of Sundance and proceeding directly to the cult canon, Computer Chess is one of our absolute favorites of 2013: a hilarious, eerie, endlessly inventive shaggy dog comedy about the birth of our new era from “mumblecore” headmaster Andrew Bujalski. Long live A.I.!
