I thought this would be a quirky documentary based on the packaging, not a fake documentary. I agree: unwatchable. Zero stars. I fast forwarded a lot. I don't even understand what it was about. As a computer programmer, it doesn't make sense that one of the team's computers was performing badly when playing against a non-human player. I don't get it about the swingers/birth re-creation people or why that other guy couldn't get a room and was sleeping wherever or why there was a room full of cats or ???

I'll keep this short:
I found Computer Chess un-watchable.

With its delightfully retro production design, Computer Chess is an inventive, intelligent, and humorous comedy that celebrates the eccentricity and uniqueness of its subject.

Rewarding and fun little indie. Had to force myself to stick with it but eventually found myself really enjoying it.
