Focus - Mike Ross / Street Fighter IV documentary

I had seen the trailer for the documentary Focus a while ago (it's about Mike Ross, a professional Street Fighter IV player) and I saw yesterday that it was now completed and available to watch online for free. I just finished watching it and I gotta say it's a great piece.

The movie follows Mike Ross throughout the year 2010. We learn about his childhood, how he got into videogames, how he developed a passion for Street Fighter and started to compete. At the same time, he also earned a college degree and still plans on using what he learned to do work besides playing SF4 competitively (producing CrossCounter TV, for example). Other than that, the documentary is about his passion for the game and his sense of competition. We see interviews with him, his friends and his family.
I found the movie was well done and interesting to watch.

Below is the trailer and here's where you can watch it (for free).
