A complex and fascinating portrait of genius wasted.
-James Greenberg, The Hollywood Reporter
BOBBY FISCHER AGAINST THE WORLD is a feature documentary that uses the narrative tension of the 1972 match between Boris Spassky and Bobby Fischer to explore the nature of genius, madness, and the game of chess itself. This film tells the stranger-than-fiction story of the rise and fall of an American icon.
