Ecstasy of Order documents the making of a Tetris master

"Tetris first made its debut in 1984 as the brainchild of Russian scientist Alexey Pajitnov. American audiences grew to know Tetris as a launch title for the original Game Boy in 1989. It proved to be a game that defined the phrase 'easy to learn, difficult to master.' Its stranglehold on gamers, both casual and hardcore, has only grown stronger, releasing on nearly every platform known to man. This week sees the release of a documentary called 'Ecstasy of Order: The Tetris Masters,' which follows the lives of a special breed of Tetris player.

'It's a feature-length documentary that follows multiple world-record-holding Tetris Masters as they prepare for the 2010 Classic Tetris World Championships,' explained 'Ecstasy of Order' director Adam Cornelius. 'On the surface, it's a competition documentary, a genre that has become popular in the last decade.", writes ShackNews. (Culture, Retro, Tetris)
