I stumbled across this 1980-ish movie. Anyone ever heard of it? Thought it might be of interest. It's in 3 parts, scroll towards the bottom of the page.
Wow! Never heard of it! Thank you
I think it kinda neat to see these great chess players on film .
I just finished watching it. What a strange documentary! It's focus was political. It was an anti-Soviet documentary. It was mainly about three chess players: Karpov, Korchnoi, and Fischer. Also, it focused upon the Russian Jews against the Soviet Russian, with Karpov representing the Soviets, while Fischer and Korchnoi represented the Jews. Bizarre, fragmented, and lacking direction, the film really has no discernible point to it. It's worth a view to see some of the famous chess players of the 70s, but the producers of this film are very inconsistent with what narrative they tried to piece together, and they have a political bias that appears naive, manipulative, and scattered. IMO.
The Cold War was a very tense time. We sometimes forget what it was like before 1989.
Anyone know where to watch The Great Chess Movie nowadays? I checked the link above from 3 yrs ago and it is no longer available on Youtube. Would really be interested to watch it.
