Bobby Fischer: Against the World

May 12, 2022 | Sports, TOP 100, Videos

This is a documentary that is looking into the life of the late chess Grandmaster and eleventh World Champion Bobby Fischer. It consolidates interviews with chess players Anthony Saidy, Larry Evans, Sam Sloan, Susan Polgar, Garry Kasparov, Asa Hoffmann, Friðrik Ólafsson, Lothar Schmid and others. It incorporates never-before-seen footage from the World Chess Championship in 1972.

This entrancing film archives the ascent and fall of chess grandmaster Bobby Fischer. It isn’t generally about chess; it is more focused on a man who was fixated by it. As a consequence of his quest for flawlessness on the chess board, he, piece by piece, lost his own mental health. The power of the psyche diversions important to succeed in top level chess flooded into the individual existence of Fischer until he turned into a completely fledged neurotic schizophrenic.

The ultimate result of this lifestyle brought up his public anti-Semite and September 11th ravings. This clearly demonstrated his deteriorating mental condition. His genius on the chess board was driven by his condition more than anything else.
