"Tilt: The Battle to Save Pinball" is a documentary that tells the story of Pinball 2000, a mind-blowing attempt at resuscitating pinball that failed just at the moment many people thought it might succeed. A "Soul of a New Machine" for the pinball world, "Tilt" is a compendium of interviews with legends of the pinball industry, photos, and film of the best games the industry has produced. Though nominally about pinball, the film is many things: a story of innovation, a business case study, a nostalgia trip, a story about personality and passion, of unlikely teamwork and cooperation in a workplace traditionally driven by ego. It's a story of a bold success dizzyingly followed by stunning failure. From its nostalgic opening jaunt through pinball history to its heartbreaking ending, employing remarkable animation throughout, "Tilt" is a fascinating case study for anyone interested not just in pinball, but in the march of technology and the intersection of art and commerce. "You don't have to be a fan of pinball to enjoy the storytelling in 'Tilt'.." --Kelly Williams, Austin Film Festival.
