There’s no shortage of films which contain a chess theme, but one of the most interesting I’ve come across is Guy Ritchie‘s Revolver. Although panned by critics I thought it was deep and interesting, especially the second time I watched it.
Guy Ritchie’s relationship with Madonna, together with their joint interest in chess and the Kabbalah, seems to have heavily influenced the complex and difficult concepts which this film attempts to explore. And you probably need to be into this inner voyage and attempts to gain enlightenment to really understand Revolver.
Here anyway is a clip from the film which provides a taster as to what it’s about.
