This guy deserves more recognition. Hollywood should make a movie about him; such a movie if made right would make a lot of millions and would inspire a whole generation of chess players in the U.S.
I liked the fact that this documentary film showed videos of Magnus as a kid and as he was growing up and I liked that they showed all of his games as a candidate and all his games against the world champion. And the ending was well made too.
The guy has been world champion since 2013 and is currently holding three world titles.
I cannot wait for part II of the 2020 Candidates Tournament to resume when covid-19 permits it. It is clear that Maxime, Ian, or Fabiano will win to challenge Magnus. If it is Ian vs. Magnus, it will be epic!
Conclusion: highly recommend this documentary film. Very enjoyable. I do not play but I am inspired to learn.
