Balls.ie Sports Documentary Of The Week: 'Bobby Fischer Against The World'

Balls.ie Sports Documentary Of The Week: 'Bobby Fischer Against The World'
By Donny Mahoney Updated

The '70s were fucking crazy. Case in point, the sport of chess nudged its way into the centre of geopolitical intrigue. The Russians bossed the board. In an effort to win a moral victory of the Soviet regime, America turned its lonely eyes to a mercurial Brooklyner named Bobby Fischer.

Released in 2014, 'The People Against Bobby Fischer' tells Fischer's surreal story, from Brooklyn to Reykjavik, where he would play Boris Spassky. Malcolm Gladwell and Henry Kissinger contribute to this compelling documentary, which charts the destructive side of genius.
