Mind Boggling

by Karalia on 6/27/2002

A definitive piece of history not to be missed by anyone. I knew nothing of the reality and plot of this movie (intentionally so), which kept me guessing and back tracking throughout, while trying to separate Nash's realities, in my OWN mind. Nash's battle to repair a psyche that is seemingly devising it's own needs by way of intricate dillusions of plot and character, is astounding. How does a mind fracture in such a way that would allow all the senses to participate in a false reality and then turn on that reality and fight it? The implied fragility alone, only whispers of the impossibilities that he somehow managed to overcome and live with. I truly believe that without the support of his wife and friends, he would not have found his way. The movie is stunning in every aspect... especially in the fragileness that often comes with a mind both genuis and lacking.

Review ...[Crowe] rises to the challenge of the role with fearless integrity. He's electrifying. Points too for Jennifer Connelly, luminous and touching as Nash's long-suffering wife... a harrowing journey for the audience.

Review ...an unusually thoughtful look at mental illness and its disabling power... [Crowe's] intensity is such, and his talent so large, that he pulls us into Nash's world... A Beautiful Mind does a wonderful job of dramatizing [mental illness], making schizophrenia visible and suggesting that those who suffer from it are not unlike the rest of us.
