Synopsis
In 1998 pinball was dying, thanks to a saturated market and shrinking player base. Williams, the world's largest pinball manufacturer, prepared to abandon the game that had made it a legend in favor of the more lucrative video slot machine business. "TILT: The Battle to Save Pinball" is an hour-long 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 bold success dizzyingly followed by stunning failure. From its nostalgic opening jaunt through pinball history to its heartbreaking ending, enploying remarkable animation throughout, "TILT: The Battle to Save Pinball" is a fascinating case study for anyone interested not just in pniball, but in the march of technology and the intersection of art and commerce.
