Movie Reviews

The New York Times - 9/10 by Nicolas Rapold Along the way comes a bracing, honest confession about these interactive creations, voiced by one designer but no doubt applying to many more makers of all kinds: "I made it for myself."
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 9/10 by Guy Dixon Video-game developers: Geeks, nerds, socially adrift obsessives. Indie Game thankfully gets past such base introductions in a flash and graduates to far more engrossing levels – levels which open up into the real worlds of the best independent game developers working their craft.
The Hollywood Reporter - 8/10 by Duane Byrge Well-crafted and intelligent, this film is an illumination of the agony of creation – the self-doubt, the obsession, the life sacrifices – that are the core, not merely the side-effects of those define themselves through "art."
Variety - 7/10 by Rob Nelson The picture scores big points by drawing a sharp distinction between corporate vidgame programmers and indies.
Village Voice - 7/10 by Brian Miller An insightful new geek documentary, well directed by first-timers Lisanne Pajot and James Swirsky.
Los Angeles Times - 7/10 by Gary Goldstein Fortunately, Pajot and Swirsky don't overdo the minutiae (this is a movie even non-gamers can enjoy), offering just enough insight into the creative process to feel enlightening.
Slant Magazine - 6/10 by Nick Schager Makes a compelling case for games as not only clever hand-eye coordination exercises, but also as manifestations of their creators' emotional and philosophical viewpoints.
Time Out New York - 6/10 by Keith Uhlich This is a movie about a subculture, made for that subculture; only hard-core Xboxers need apply.
User Review - 10/10 by a7quantum One of the best films... Definitely the best film about gaming industry! The story about not such popular genre of contemporary games - indie games- games made by a single person or a small group of people, seam to be simple, but truely asOne of the best films...
User Review - 10/10 by oporks THE BEST MOVIE OF MY LIFE, Motivational. I cried 8 or 9 times. I saw myself in each frame.
User Review - 10/10 by Mitchellsymes I am a gamer Have been since I was 4/5 years old I have wanted to makes games most of my life this Movie shows how hard it is to be a indie game developer and how much time and work goes in to the games it also shows the life of these indie game developers and what it takes to get rid of the bugs in the games it shows all the things they need to give up to make games and how they are just like us they smile at the reviews and laugh they are not just indie game developers they have family it shows that and friends and the music is great in the movie we get really close to what they are trying to put in to the games and how the games are some parts of their childhood
User Review - 10/10 by Bluebird1982 The American spirit in action. Someone giving their all and putting themselves on their line is something we can all relate to... if only because we've never had the courage to do so. This is an amazingly well done documentary and a must see for anyone searching for meaning in their lives. Or maybe I just am, and that's why I loved it. Almost shed a tear there when the stupid girlfriend did.
