I cannot believe 'Pinball: The Man Who Saved the Game' does not even have a wikipedia page. The best lowest budget film I've watched. It's just so wholesome and whole and complete. Every element of the movie is doing its job. Foremost, the story is well organized with clear plot development yet it's not simple. Old Roger's narration in interview form and during the interaction with past Roger are the right amount of diversion to add more fun (and still be neat). Editing and the pace of the film are very up-to-date. They contribute to the upbeat and witty atmosphere of the movie. The color palette and the costume are trendy and vintage at the same time. They are old-time but not outdated. Message and theme are clear: taking a shot. It's hidden in pinball and manifested through Roger's work and relationship. Finally, MIKE FAIST.. He can act, man. He can lead 90 minutes of work with brilliant chemistry with his co-stars. I do not care about being genuine because nothing is really that genuine between a screen; If the outcome is delivered with great quality, I'm satisfied. However, for Faist, his conveyance of emotion of Roger and his relationship with others seem genuine. The role really suits him because it can bring out his theater-ish personality.
