Wondering why times are missing?

Darkon

This hilarious and oddly moving documentary transports viewers into the little-seen world of Live-Action Role Playing. In the Darkon Wargaming Club of Baltimore, Md., thousands of (semi-)ordinary people escape the opressive reality of modern-day America by dressing up in homemade medieval armor and beating the snot out of one another with foam rubber weapons. The film gives us an insightful glimpse into the lives of people who LARP. At the same time, it lenses their massive fantasy battles in a reverent, epic style--like The Lord of the Rings on a $1.98 budget. 89 minutes
