Film Review Short Shorts: Bobby Fischer Against the World

BENSON_1972_Bobby_Fischer

BOBBY FISCHER AGAINST THE WORLD (2011) by Liz Garbus: 7/10

24 Words or Less: The sad life of a true ‘stereotype’ troubled chess genius. Spends an hour building up to championship victory then rattles through his subsequent breakdown.

Best bit: Wouldn’t be the film it is without Harry Benson’s beautiful photographs (LIFE magazine).
