The Speed Cubers

Become one with the cube.

To any child of the ’80s who struggled with Rubik’s infernal toy, watching this highly-entertaining, very-emotional short doc is a revelation.

Here, not only does everyone solve the taunting cube, but they do it with blinding speed, and, sometimes, just one hand.

Tracking the beautiful relationship which grows between two champs — an outgoing Aussie and his autistic American counterpart — it’s a testament to the truth you can make a great film about any subject.

There’s suspense on the competition floor, but the power of the movie comes from its warm embrace of its diverse stars.
