The Dark Horse

This NZ film is based on real life speed chess player Genesis Potini, played by a chunky Cliff Curtis, who does a very good job, nice to see him in a comedic/dramatic role, and not playing some dumb baddie. I just read he played Pablo Escobar in Blow, don’t remember that. The last film he was in he played Jesus! Genesis was bi-polar so was in and out of mental institutions, he was mixed up in biker gangs too, they feature a lot in this. There is a doco about Genesis, which I now want to see.

Date watched: 27th August
