Movie Info

You're Gonna Miss Me director Keven McAlester shifts his focus from the troubled mind of a rock 'n' roll legend to the frail psyche of the American middle-class by exploring the lives of three devoted Dungeons and Dragons enthusiasts who find the harsh realities of life impeding on their rich worlds of fantasy. Aspiring novelist Scott possesses a sharp wit and an active imagination. But when Scott's writing career fails to pay off, the strain of supporting his family finds him retreating into a

The Dungeon Masters fails as a journalistic exploration of gaming. But as a glimpse into the lives of the people behind the dungeon master's screen, it rolls high.

In the end, the qualities that make a Dungeon Master also make for an interesting individual.

As portrayed in the film, gamers dont play because of passion, but because of pathology.

Its ultimate message may be that, rather than gaming being a way for misfits to escape from reality, rolling the dice and spinning yarns may be what is finest and most creative about them.

Audience Reviews for The Dungeon Masters

A very interesting premise comes to nothing in this lacklustre documentary. The film makers picked a bunch of people who are into pen&paper roleplaying (Dungeons & Dragons and the like) and take a swift and superficial glimpse into their gaming habits and lives. Unfortunately, there is no thread to follow, no tangible connection between the non-gamer part of the subjects' lives and their gaming. The film does educate or document but simple shows a few random moments out of the lives of random people. That they happen to play RPGs in their free time does not really matter or tie in with anything else in their lives. I can see that the the film maker wanted to make an off-beat portray of weirdos but I find that utterly uninteresting. Why, for example did he not include completely "normal" and "socialised" people to portray as well ? No, it had to be lonely, socially Packard and bizarre people. Another uninteresting post-Moore documentary which tries to hard to be "weird" instead of being truly interested in its subject.
