About this movie

Set over the course of a weekend tournament for chess software programmers thirty-some years ago, COMPUTER CHESS transports viewers to a nostalgic moment when the contest between technology and the human spirit seemed a little more up for grabs. We get to know the eccentric geniuses possessed of the vision to teach a metal box to defeat man, literally, at his own game, laying the groundwork for artificial intelligence as we know it and will come to know it in the future.

Can someone please explain to me where the past 90 minutes went? I'm honestly not sure why this movie was ever made. I guess I just don't "get it."

One of the funniest movies I've seen this year and a for sure an instant classic somewhere between Napoleon Dynamite and Eraserhead!
