Critic Reviews for Algorithms
Visually arresting as it is, the pic stands out mainly for its subject matter, the first documentary on blind chess, even though it fits snugly within the sub-genre of underdog stories.
"Algorithms" is a completely unique film, unlike any other documentary you'll see this year, both for its content and its form. But it is also a deeply absorbing, timeless, universal tale with themes anyone can find inspiration in.
An object lesson in how a remarkable subject can be turned into a less remarkable film.
As with many stories about children involved in a competitive activity, "Algorithms" is partly a portrait of grown-up hopes channeled through kids.
Three visually impaired teenage boys from India who play chess at the championship level are the subject of this slow-moving yet soulful documentary.
