‘Game’ on!

Wanna watch a feature documentary on pro video gamers? Here you go!

From 2008, the documentary “Beyond the Game” made some buzz on the festival circuit, and finally hit home video last summer from Cinema Purgatorio. Now, courtesy of the same, you can watch the film for free, in full, right freakin’ now. Thanks, guys! 

The doc follows pro video gamers from around the world, vying for the title of “World of Warcraft” champion. 

Hey, it’s good to have a goal. —Rod Lott
