A perspective on Bobby and his "sad story", 5 Oct 2011
First of all it is wonderful to be able to take a glimpse into Bobby Fischer's life however it is also sad to note that such a "national hero" - or even a "global hero" - as Bobby was so badly treated and forgotten, later on, by his own country (government).
In case he would have been treated better and with well deserved respect then probably(?) he woud not have "turned his coat" against his own country?!
Sad to say, but Bobby was - in a way - a bit insane and that is something that the public (US) should have tolerated given the fact that he won the "cold war" on his own terms!
He did not need guns, he did it by using his intellect and a few wooden pieces. Imagine if all wars could be solved in the same manner without 'bloodshed'! That accomplishment alone is something that probably nobody will ever be able to repeat!
So rest in peace Bobby (!); hopefully he will receive a 'postumpt' respect and honour despite the fact that he turned insane due to unfortunate circumstances.
The film was good and a "must" for every chess player - world wide!
