Here are some reviews:
EYE FOR FILM UK
“….Special When Lit is reminiscent of that other great documentary Spellbound. Both draw the audience into a world of obsession, impress upon you the level of devotion, and charm you with the people in that world….”

“Masterfully shot, Sullivan brings out something nostalgic in his documentary, intriguing in some ways, also fascinating in others, it seems at time like an emotional and sensitive area, with pinball’s fans describing of the game like a relationship, their faces lighting up as if they were recounting their first kiss….Special When Lit is an encapsulating and absorbing watch, retracing the passion of pinball followers, but also the sad dissolution of, what could be described as a certain way of living and playing.”

BIG SKY FESTIVAL
With a gripping intro, the film draws you in and keeps your attention with its larger-than-life characters. Names like “The Storm” and “Pingeek” exemplify the way the game has even created alternate personas for some players. The result of a train wreck, mixed with an epic saga and baked in an oven of special effects, is enough to make viewers dropping video game remotes, hankering to get their hands on nostalgic mechanical games.

If you are into pinball this movie is a must. Buy it on DVD if you can find it somewhere that is not sold out yet, or do as I did and download it in iTunes.
