John B. Davis Lecture Hall (JBD), Ruth Stricker Dayton Campus Center

Film critic and Macalester alumnus Colin Covert '74, continues his review of the greatest films you've never heard of with the 2011 Alumni Spring Film Series "Hidden Gems and Surprises, Part 2." Plan to join him for some interesting films and great discussion! Here are Colin's insights on the final film in the series, The King of Kong:

The most fascinating, entertaining documentary of the year centers around ... videogame geeks? We dare you not to become enthralled by (and at times, enraged with) the men vying for Donkey Kong's world record in a story inhabited by characters so absurd you'll swear it's a mockumentary.

"Hidden Gems and Surprises, Part 2" happens 7 p.m. on Wednesdays, March 23-April 27 in the John B. Davis Auditorium in the Campus Center. The films for the series include: Winter's Bone (3/23), Son of Rambow (3/30), The Lookout (4/6), Mother (4/20), King of Kong (4/27).

The registration fee for the film series is $25 per person for the entire series or $5 per person for each film. Register online here.
