Set over the course of a weekend tournament for chess software programmers circa 1980, 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.

This strange and beguiling existential comedy from Andrew Bujalski is truly unlike anything you've ever seen.

"Filmmaking intelligence...peculiar and sneakily brilliant."  - A.O. Scott, The New York Times

"The funniest, headiest, most playfully eccentric American indie of the year." - Aaron Hillis, The Village Voice

"Computer Chess defies easy categorization. It’s the year’s most singular and adventurous movie to date." -Mike D'Angelo, The A.V. Club
