I dare anyone top watch “The King of Kong” without shouting “What a douchebag!” at Billy Mitchell, the documentary’s idiotic villain. In a story all about dorky, messed-up guys obsessed with Donkey Kong, Billy Mitchell stands out as sort of a super-asshole with delusions of grandeur and a hairdo that epitomizes everything awful about the 70s AND 80s.
Mr. Mitchell has complained that the film was edited to depict him as the bad guy. I don’t care what the filmmakers left out or stuck into their documentary; Billy Mitchell is the most sickening person I can even imagine. See this movie just for the adrenaline rush of wanting to punch someone in the face!
