About the Movie
Acclaimed documentary Viva Amiga is a retro love letter to the freaks, geeks, and geniuses behind the best damned computer ever made: the Commodore Amiga.
fascinating chapter in computer nerd history!
The 80s style music, graphics, and archival footage gathered here is fantastic! Totally forgotten chapter in the history of computers - must see for anyone into Apple and pop culture for that matter. Heck, the bit with Andy Warhol creating art on an Amiga alone is worth the price!
Still my favorite computer
Most people credit Apple, Microsoft, and IBM with creating the personal computer world we have today. The early Macs were black and white, the IBM's were just as limited. They had a role to play; but more than all of these, the Amiga created the multimedia, multi-tasking universe of the personal computer we know today. It was at least 10 years ahead of the rest of the world, and if it had been managed better, would now be the most popular computer. It was and is "the computer that wouldn't die". I still have never seen elsewhere the amazing collection of creativity that surrounded the Amiga. It was a worldwide culture of creative genius, but ignored by history. It was where art and technology became one. The first time I saw an Amiga, it was like seeing something from another galaxy. This movie gives this important part of history the recognition it deserves. I just wish it had been longer, there's still so much more to say.
A fascinating story of a truly remarkable machine and the people who prolong it's legacy. Can't recommend it enough!
