Scott Hardie: “It ruled.”
This is a short (40-minute) documentary that purports to be about the competitive world of speed-cubing, but is really about the friendship between the two best cubers in the world, both teens who are soon to age out of the sport. It's a really touching relationship, and each one is clearly better for getting to know the other. There's also a great sense of sportsmanship throughout, as the players root for each other instead of themselves. I enjoyed this.
