It has been almost 40 years since Bobby Fischer won the world chess championship, and more than three years since he died. Now, thanks to a documentary that made its debut at the Sundance Film Festival last month, audiences who may not know the story of Fischer’s brilliant but disturbed life will get a chance to learn about it this summer and fall.
Music Box Films (best-known for foreign-language films, including “Tell No One” and the “Millennium” series) announced on Tuesday that it had bought the United States theatrical distribution rights to “Bobby Fischer Against the World,” a documentary by Liz Garbus. HBO, which co-financed the film, will show the documentary as well.
I have that on audio tape. Haven't listened to it yet.
Oh wait, that's not the one I have.
Watched it last night on DVD and was quite impressed with the quality of reportage, editing, etc. Moving, thoughtful, music by Philip Sheppard (who also did the soundtrack for the brilliant In the Shadow of the Moon). Wish there was a bit more actual chess though - that was disappointing, but not entirely unexpected, I suppose.
