Bobby Fischer Against the World

Dir. Liz Garbus (2011). A haunting portrait of the chess genius as an incandescent prodigy and horrifying old crank, Garbus’s documentary devotes most of its first hour to the Spassky match and tactfully handles Fischer’s decline. The ranting codger never effaces the image of the boy concentrating his entire being over a chessboard.
