Hollywood, CA, November 21, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Way of the Puck, a new documentary feature film about competitive air hockey, has been receiving unanimously positive reviews since its release on DVD two weeks ago. The movie follows around many of the quirky personalities involved in the pursuit of competing at air hockey and preventing its gradual extinction.
“It’s nice to see that the film is striking a particular chord in audiences,” says director Eric D. Anderson, who was once ranked twenty-fourth in the world. “There’s something about the outsider nature of air hockey players and their passion that is really resonating with viewers. And plus world-class air hockey is so great to watch, of course.”
Andrea Rothe at Chud.com gives Way of the Puck 9.5 out of 10 stars. “Anderson tells a great story,” she writes. “And he continually points one back to the history, and forward to the unpromising future of the sport, allowing sport itself taking on a humanity and lifetime of its own that is worth telling.
Tom Hoeler at JustPressPlay.com writes: "A love letter to a disappearing hobby, it is absolutely one of those films that embodies the old critique ‘you’ll laugh, you’ll cry.’ Either way, you won’t soon forget the time spent with these puckheads."
"It's an intriguing look at something most of us are similiar with but that we don't really think about much anymore,” writes Clark Douglas at DVDVerdict.com. “ A unique game that has been fighting to survive for decades now. Good as this stuff is, it's the affecting look at the men who truly love the sport that makes Way of the Puck worth a look."
Seth Gordon, director of King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters concurs. Way of the Puck has “wonderful characters” and a “fun story” he says.
The Way of the Puck DVD is distributed by Creative Ape and is available for sale through the film’s website http://wayofthepuck.com and at Amazon. In the coming months the film will widen its distribution scope and be available elsewhere to buy, download, and stream.
