Chess and Filmmaking

Given that it's been five weeks since my previous Video Friday post, World Champion Blitz, you might think I had plenty to choose from, and you would be right. My short list had more than 30 videos, but the top pick turned out to be a no-brainer.

The Kubrick Files Ep. 2 – What Chess Taught Kubrick About Filmmaking (6:47) • 'Kubrick had been obsessed with chess ever since he was a child and he used what he learned about strategy, logic, and patience and applied it to the decision-making process.'

For previous posts on this blog about chess and Kubrick, see They Played Chess with Kubrick (December 2013) and Bombs Away (March 2016).
