Maladroit pioneers right on cusp of digital change ★★★ 1/2
Very little in the movies is harder to get right than very recent history. "Computer Chess," a fantastically deadpan comedy from the writer-director Andrew Bujalski, gets its chosen corner of the early 1980s very, very right — and on a wee budget, apparently spent on the peerlessly unsightly wristwatches of the day.
