1) MASTERPIECE MOVIE
A Beautiful Mind was by far the most original, intelligent and entertaining movie I have ever seen. I have seen a lot of movies in my time, but this movie just took me by storm. Its uniqueness, ironically enough because it was based on a real life situation.
This movie provided a brilliant (pardon the pun) insight into many aspects of a genius at work. And, I think, this movie is by far one of the most compelling movies of our generation. It’s really more than deserved to be included on my collection list. 🙂
It touched me on many levels. The psychology of the movie was intriguing, the mathematical philosophies was realistic, and the icing on the cake making the movie stand out was surprisingly the humanistic side of Love. While love is a common basis in most movies, the interaction of this theme with other aspects of the plot was planned phenomenally.
2) INSPIRING QUOTES
The Only Thing Greater Than the Power of Mind is the Courage of Heart..
He Saw The World In A Way No One Could Have Imagined..
I need to believe that something extra ordinary is possible…
3) THE STORY
“A Beautiful Mind”, based on the novel by Sylvia Nasar, is the story of John Forbes Nash Jr., the genius mathematician, whose life suddenly takes a turn for the worse when he is diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. After fierce battles with his inner self, he overcomes this and returns to win the Nobel Prize in 1994 for his breakthrough game theory in economics that he had been working on during his years in Princeton University in the 1950s.
John Nash, portrayed very well by the versatile and brilliant Russell Crowe, is a partly shy, yet ironic and sometimes even arrogant, gifted young student studying in Princeton University in the late 1940s. He dedicates his time to numbers and equations, set on to solving every problem at hand, rather than mingling with co-students on the football field or in the pub.
I was pleased to see it ranked on the list of most inspiring movies. So, in conclusion, A Beautiful Mind, a story of love, intellect, fear, emotion, triumph, and hope deserves a rightful spot, among such movies as The Godfather, Casablanca, and Gone with the Wind, etc.
4) THE VALUE (MESSAGE)
I hope a lot of people see this film. Not just because Russell Crowe is a hunk or because it’s a Ron Howard piece, but because you will learn something important. You will learn why compassion is an absolute must, especially when dealing with life problem. And, when someone you love is dealing with a very complicated problem, you won’t ask them to “pull themselves together.” You will understand why they need your love — because they are just as confused as you are.
All I can tell you now is that if you’re looking for an emotionally-charged movie that will make you fell deep-touched, but still filters in some very funny moments as to lighten things up every now and then, with near perfect acting, the story of John Nash to inspire you, have a strong point and an important message to the viewer, Or for anyone whose grown tired of the constant pointless movies out there, and instead want to immerse themselves into a character-driven story that might actually bring a tear to your eyes, I sincerely recommend “A Beautiful Mind”.
