I was just wondering if anyone knew of any good chess books (fiction) and/or movies out there.  Here are a few to start:  Searching for Bobby Fischer - a good movie about child prodigy Josh Waitzskin    and for a book The Flander's Panel - by Arturo Perez Reverte   a story about a painting depicting 2 famous figures engaged in a game.  One of the people had been murdered long ago, and an art history person analyzes the board (and figures out retrospectively how the game must have played out) in order to reveal a clever clue innate to the chess position as to who murdered that person.  Yeah. Good, semi-quick read
