Bobby Fischer Against the World
PG, 93 minutes
We all know the story of Bobby Fischer, who, at the height of his career, was the one of the most famous people in the world—for playing chess. This fine feature doc examines the man's complicated life from his well-publicized early years as a wunderkind all the way to his famous reclusion and sad psychological breakdown. In between, director Liz Garbus chronicles the riveting day-by-day details of the "Match of the Century" with Boris Spassky for the World Championship. It’s a familiar story well told, a fascinating story of sport, pop culture, politics, and most importantly, the rare phenomenon of genius.
