A Beautiful Mind

I saw this intriguing movie last night. A Beautiful Mind, based on the Nobel Prize winner in Economic Sciences, is the story of John Nash, about how he cope up with his brilliant mind, and his veridical friends.


This movie, takes us to a journey of his entire life, and we witness the world through the eyes of a mathematician, breaking some of the very complex encryptions, that would otherwise take too much resources to solve.
Also what made me enjoy this movie, was the sheer depiction of the flow of time. Which was like when The Time Traveler of H.G. Wells novel, flies to the future, in its movie version. Its is just fascinating to see the time scaled up to an extent, where winters to spring happens in a few seconds, and we could see the transformations, which is otherwise too slow to notice for an average Joe.

I think one of the justifications for this movie to be awarded with four Oscars, can be given by the fact that not a single moment did I feel that Russell Crowe was an actor. He was so unbelievably more believable.
A beautiful mind, is a beautiful movie, the beauty of which lies in the mind of the character, and the technique he uses to find the solutions of the problems, which itself takes a shape of an art, very few is able to materialize.
And I could go on and on, writing about this art which almost all of us have inside us somewhere. But may be next time.
Having done the graduation in Maths, I am repenting just one thing. “Why wasn’t I recommended this movie, a couple of years ago!”

One thought on “A Beautiful Mind

  1. You had not been recommended this movie earlier because its time had not come then.
    …and there is much more to the movie if you would have noticed. Like the small girl and John's friend had been with him till end of the movie and when he refuses them to accept as the real persons in his real life, they go, rather hesitatingly. This was directed amazingly. Audience also started believing initially that they were actual person like a patient suffering from Schizophrenia must be feeling. You can see the interviews of Real life Prof Nash on youtube as well. otherwise here he is on wiki : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Forbes_Nash,_Jr.
    Keep watching.
