  1. I can't think of another movie that more fluently communicates the special agony and ecstasy of the game of chess.
  2. Moves with fluidity and ease through brisk opening conventions to a perfectly poised and balanced endgame.
  3. Carefully made, involving and old-fashioned, the superior work it's inspired gives it an impact that lingers even when the endgame is over.
  4. Reviewed by: Ty Burr
    Fine candy for mind and eye.
