Computer Chess (2013)


Link: Computer Chess

Summary: A group of programming nerds get together at a convention to let their chess programs battle each other in a computer chess tournament.

Thoughts: As someone who enjoys both chess and programming (and I’m working on my own chess engine), I thought this would be interesting.  But I suppose I would’ve been much more interested in a straight-forward documentary on the subject of computer chess.  This film tries to be an awkward comedy, somewhere between a comedy-drama and a mockumentary, but hardly any of its humor is very funny, and there’s not much for the true computer chess fan to see.
