Interesting even if you don't know much about chess
For a person that doesn't know much about chess and only knows some of the names and some of the basics about chess this is actually quite an interesting documentary and story.
Bobby Fischer is in many ways a very odd person, very intellectual and kind of obsessed with chess and I don't know what it is, if he is giving a damn about how people and the press sees him or doesn't give a damn about it. But the fact is that he is very focused and into the game and that makes all the attention of a high profiled game between him (representing USA) and Spassky (representing Russia) too much for hi in many ways.
It was an interesting and for most parts very factional based documentary about Bobby Fisher also for one like me that doesn't know much about chess.
