Ecstasy of Order

A film by Adam Cornelius
Starring Thor Aackerlund, Pat Contri, Harry Hong

A documentary that captures the world’s greatest Tetris players as they prepare for the Classic Tetris World Championship.

From the days of Thor Aackerlund and his historic victory at the 1990 Nintendo World Championships, right up to the present and Harry Hong’s perfect “Max-Out” score, this documentary chronicles over two decades of Tetris mastery.

Ecstasy of Order tracks down a group of record-holding Tetris Masters as they prepare to compete in the 2010 Classic Tetris World Championship. Witness the Masters as they reveal their secrets, recound their obsession with the game, and enter the transcendental state required to reach the highest levels, known as the “Ecstasy of Order.”

…will delight fans of the highly addictive game… —Dennis Harvey, Variety
