  1. A47's rating of the film Searching for Bobby Fischer

    "Maybe it's better not to be the best. Then you can lose and it's okay." Writing doesn't get much better than when done by Mr. Zaillian, and his directing here is exquisite.

  2. DSPRKY's rating of the film Searching for Bobby Fischer

    Not bad; features some great actors too. (William H. Macy without wrinkles!)

  3. Borges's rating of the film Searching for Bobby Fischer

    I had expected to dislike this, but ultimately I found it to be one of the most disarming pictures I've seen to date.

  4. Z's rating of the film Searching for Bobby Fischer

    I love this movie. Made with great craft and great heart. Horner's score is magnificent.

  5. Seth Farmer's rating of the film Searching for Bobby Fischer

    A lovely film, but James Horner's score is pretty irritating at times.

  6. Bill Thompson's rating of the film Searching for Bobby Fischer

    I've always loved, and played chess, but I never thought it could be given a thrilling treatment. Steven Zaillian does it with Searching For Bobby Fischer, and he keeps an emotional core present as well, splendid picture...
