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