Atari: Game Over
www.bit.ly/xboxatari Screenwriter and director Zak Penn has been involved in many of the recent rash of superhero movies, but in Atari: Game Over, he steps away from Hollywood blockbusters to document the excavation of Atari’s ET:TheExtra
Terrestrial cartridge landfill. While the story is well told, it’s the film’s other thread – a charting of Atari’s rapid ascent and catastrophic demise – that proves most engaging. Offering up testimonies from people who were there at the time, the documentary includes Atari founder Nolan Bushnell, former Warner executive Manny Gerard, and ET creator Howard Warshaw.
