Checkmate: Movie soundtrack edition.
Every amazing movie needs an amazing soundtrack. While Josh Waitzkin was left searching for Bobby Fischer (in the literal sense), director Steven Zaillian found the emotionally evocative James Horner to score his cinematic masterpiece from 1993 based on the true story of a young chess prodigy told from the perspective of a “chess parent.”
Randomly finding this movie playing last night was (and always is) an inspiring couple of hours everyone should experience.
That instrumental is fantastic…like a pawn-takes-pawn move that sets the stage for a cleverly disguised 12-move checkmate.
Have an Awesome Week!
P.S. Those fish won’t catch themselves.
