SUNDANCE REVIEW: Bobby Fischer Against the World
Liz Garbus' documentary tells the compelling and powerful story of the late chess prodigy.
PARK CITY -- In his heyday in 1972, when he beat Russian Boris Spassky for the World Championship, chess prodigy Bobby Fischer was like a rock star, as famous and revered as Muhammad Ali. His rise from a shabby Brooklyn apartment to the heights of the chess world had caught the public's imagination, and in Liz Garbus' Bobby Fischer Against the World, the story is still compelling and powerful. It's another quality picture for HBO Documentaries, which will air the film in July.
