HBO Documentary: Bobby Fischer Against the World

On June 6th, HBO Documentary Films launches its summer series with Liz Garbus’ documentary on chess genius Bobby Fischer:  Bobby Fischer Against the World. The documentary follows Fischer’s evolution from chess prodigy and superstar to angry recluse.

If anyone wants to get together and watch it as a group, let me know and I’ll see if I can set something up. The documentary is 90 minutes long. June 6th is a Monday. I do not know the time it will air, but I’m guessing it will be during primetime (sometime between 7:00 PM and 9:00 PM).
