Critic Reviews for Game Over: Kasparov and the Machine
Although Jayanti creates an absorbing scenario of possible corporate malfeasance engineered by a group of slide-rule wielding thugs and shadowy boardroom bullies, he fails to produce the requisite smoking pawn.
Though it never disguises its sympathies for Kasparov and contempt for a powerful corporation's machinations, docu is finally a speculation on the limits of the human mind and how truth can never be fully known.
In overemphasizing the conspiracy case, Game Over moves from being a compelling documentary to a frankly irritating one.
Audience Reviews for Game Over: Kasparov and the Machine
It goes with the conspiracy story when there's a more interesting philosophical story waiting to be told.
Great nerd drama for technology enthusiasts or anyone with an interest in the bizarre subculture of grandmaster chess competition. The twelve-tone music score fits nicely alongside the sheer madness of those crazy enough to write a chess engine that could rival the skill of Garry Kasparov.
Man Vs. Machine. The human mind takes on a computer, and fails. As we see, all men succumb to paranoia, stress, confidence and so on. But is everything as it seems? Kasparov certainly presents an interesting case, but given the times, it's only natural we all hate the big company. Sure, it's suspicious that he never got a rematch. That things were kept locked behind closed doors etc. Kasparov clearly has a love for the game, and shows himself to be better than any computer by granting a rematch to his rival from many years before. Unfortunately, the director clearly has a bias and isn't very subtle about it. When the journalist talks about his article, he is shot from a high angle, half-lit and very shadowy. He is the only person shot like this. Making it kind of humorous, but also unfair. It's a great story, and Kasparov has nothing to be ashamed of. After all, he was beaten by just a single game, and the computer took many programmers etc. Certainly sparked my interest in chess.
