CS Commentary: The highest praise we can give to ‘The Queen’s Gambit, is that it seems like it should be a true story – but it’s not. It feels that real and is that convincing about the culture and world of world class chess. It is as emotionally involving as it is intellectually stirring. The lead actress, Anya Taylor-Joy, is a budding star – expect to see a lot more of her. CS Grade: A

Quotes Of The Month:

“A bureaucrat is the most despicable of men, though he is needed as vultures are needed, but one hardly admires vultures whom bureaucrats so strangely resemble. I have yet to meet a bureaucrat who was not petty, dull, almost witless, crafty or stupid, an oppressor or a thief, a holder of little authority in which he delights, as a boy delights in possessing a vicious dog. Who can trust such creatures?” — Marcus Tullius Cicero
