It's well-made and very engaging, cool soundtrack, and has more than a few surprises.
Arkaign
You should totally watch it-- it's everyman's video game documentary-- and then try to get really good at Tetris and realize how good the people in the film are.
Lesley Graybeal
It was perfectly strung together, he was somehow able to breath life into a story that is only mildly interesting, and for that, it has a thumbs up for me.

This was an outstanding piece of work and a very happy surprise. It's well-made and very engaging, cool soundtrack, and has more than a few surprises. Whether you're a gamer or not, the story and characters here are compelling. Adam Cornelius has a very keen eye for this kind of work, I look forward to seeing future films of his!

Greatest Video Game movie ever. Greatest Doc ever. 3rd greatest movie ever. Fan of Tetris, video games or not, this is worth every penny.

Everyone loves Tetris, and the heroes of this movie are loveable as well. You should totally watch it-- it's everyman's video game documentary-- and then try to get really good at Tetris and realize how good the people in the film are.

Adam Cornelius handles documentary filmmaking with an approach akin to the best artists in the industry. The film's stylistic choices (including a fantastic soundtrack) perfectly compliment the subject matter-a look at the world's most popular video game, those who love it, the finest players on the planet and so much more. Like all great documentarians, Cornelius refreshingly observes and tracks the main subjects of the film, allowing the humanity in everyone to breathe and unfold in ways that shatter one-dimensional stereotypes of gamers. Along the way the universal nature of obsession gets covered, and fascinating sub-plots emerge that need to be seen. What you wont find here are false heroes and villains; there's no manufactured drama or viewer manipulation (often the tactic of other well-known gamer/nerd genre docs). This is simply a better, more organic film than that. Enjoy, and maybe you might even be inspired to pick up Tetris again for the first time or after all these years like I did!

Let me start off by saying that I LOVE retro games. Play and collect them all the time. So when I found out about this documentary, I knew it was for me...

Now that being said, I watched this with my fiancé who isn't a gamer, never plays, and doesn't care about it.

We BOTH loved it!!

Ecstacy of Order takes an in-depth look at the most played video game ever, Tetris, and makes you think about it in a new way, all the while way taking you on a journey following the best players in the world.

It gives great background "credentials" on these players and brings the story together in which they all meet for the finale of the video, the tetris world championship.

The documentary is put together nicely and very well thought out. It keeps your interest the entire time and makes you want more when it's over.

I must warn you though...if you have a copy of tetris in any form in your house, it WILL be getting use after you are done watching this...it's inevitable.

This is a must watch for any retro gamer, and will be enjoyed by any who have played tetris, or simply like a good documentary

Great movie/Doc. Interesting and exciting characters with a great explaination of the game so even people who don't know how to play can follow along. It is hard to watch the movie and not want to go play tetris after! I am raising my game so I can go compete in the next world championships!!!

Everyone loves playing tetris, especially me, so when I saw that there was a documentary about some of the best players of the game, I had to watch it! Incredibly entertaining, loved following the story of the characters. Definitely worth checking out, it will give you a whole new perspective on how the players' minds work!
