In 1958, Bobby Fischer stunned the chess world by becoming the youngest Grand Master in history. Over the next decade and a half, his breathtaking rise to the top echelon of the game riveted the world and inspired an international chess phenomenon. Then, at the apex of his success, Fischer vanished from the public eye. Academy AwardÂ®-nominee Liz Garbus reveals the true story behind the troubled genius, from his meteoric rise to fame to the growing madness that finally consumed him.
"a complex and fascinating portrait of genius wasted" -- James Greenberg, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

However, people should know that he was affected by autism (asperger version of it), which explains most of his behaviors. Journalists always prefer to say that a person was crazy, instead of explaning the reality affecting the man.
Congratulation for the movie and I can't wait to see the new Bobby Fisher in this world. Magnus Carlsen ... who knows.
