Writer-director Joel Potrykus’ off-kilter drama features Joshua Burge, original music by Neon Indian, and social critique in the form of an offbeat lowbrow aesthetic. Burge plays a young man who accepts the challenge of sticking to his couch until he surpasses level 256 of Pac-Man in 1999 (the eve of the digital age) in hopes of winning a $100,000 cash prize.
