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!

well done documentary. i like that it focused on the players who were interesting and fun, as opposed to something like "king of kong", where the people were so bizarre that they're unbelievable. i watched this with my 72 year old mother, who has played gameboy tetris every single day for about 25 years now, and she loved it too.

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!

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

One of several niche-nuzzled documentaries to arrive within a very short period of time. Like "The King of Kong," Ecstasy of Order dedicates itself to an intensely-competitive corner of the video game world, albeit one without as polarizing a figure as Kong's infamous villain, Billy Mitchell. With no exception, each Tetris mega-mind to share this spotlight seems refreshingly earnest, friendly and down-to-Earth. These are guys and girls I wouldn't mind sharing a few beers with over a sticky NES control pad, and it's tough not to sit back, smile, and revel in the moment when they all get together for the very first time, several world records change hands and a spontaneous game of Texas Hold 'Em breaks out. In some ways, I think that's a symptom of the broadly different approaches of the two games: where Donkey Kong is about fire, death and imposition, Tetris is more in line with a timed jigsaw puzzle. It's quiet, inwardly-focused and nuanced, and thus so are its greatest players. Depending on the viewer's mentality, their ultimate enjoyment of the two films may vary appropriately. Sprinkled with a set of widely-varied contenders, more than its share of mysterious intrigue and the pointed quest to crown the world's best player in a first-ever champion's tournament, this is a startlingly arresting subject and a dense display of cerebral gamesmanship. Well worth watching.

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

love this movie. I played tetris friends online for 2 years straight while in tech school. Highly addicting and well portrayed. I like how humble everyone in the movie is too and appreciate this movie's production.
