DarkJade’s Films of Meaning – Searching For Bobby Fischer

by DarkJade

A Child’s Heart is No Trivial Thing… And if Toyed With, it can Easily Be Broken.

Searching For Bobby Fischer…

“Searching For Bobby Fischer” is a Very Important Film for/to me…

There are a Hand Full of Films that Remind me of Pieces of Myself… But The Main Character Josh in this Film, Reminds me of about 90% of Who I was as a Kid.

I Too Learned Chess at a Very Early Age… In fact, I beat My Brother and Sister so often, that they stopped playing with me… And so I basically stopped playing.

But more than that, I’ve Always Felt that Only When I Succeeded, did My Dad Truly Appreciate, and/or See me…

In This Film, The Egos of Two Men Try to Mold This Beautiful, Compassionate, Talented Boy…

Into something they Want Him To Be…

But he will not let them…

But he is just a Boy, and so His Soul is Slowly Being Crushed by these two men, who are “Blinded” by what they See and Feel is “Success” in Life.

But just as it’s about to Go Too Far, His Mother, Catching A Glimpse at what’s really going on, Stops Them…

But I have to tell you there is much more in this Film than This… Beneath the Blackened Sky Created by His Father, and His Teacher… There is a River of Friendships that are being Forged…

Not only with his Friend at the Park (Laurence Fishburne), but also with His Teacher and Father who are basically just Out of Control During the First 2/3 of The Film… Once The Mother Steps in and Stops them… The two of them Start to Wake Up, and Pull Their Heads out of there #@#!@… Lol, You know what I mean… And once they do, Josh is able to get back to Playing The Game That He not Only is a Natural Master At, but it’s Basically A Part of Who He is…

And Just Because He’s Able to Crush His Enemies, doesn’t Change the Fact that He’s a Decent, Loving Kid, who’d just Assume Play Ball or Go Fishing, than Crush His Enemies.

This Film Has A Lot of Meaning to Me… Hopefully It Will Have a lot of Meaning to you as well

Thanks for Reading/Listening/Watching
