A Beautiful Mind (2001)

John Nash is a brilliant but asocial mathematician fighting schizophrenia. After he accepts secret work in cryptography, his life takes a turn for the nightmarish.


Good movie. Russell Crowe's perfomance in this movie is amazing! Jennifer Connelly is also very good in this picture.

I must admit the reason I refused to watch this for a long time was Russell Crowe. I had seen one or two of his movies and I was not very impressed by him - and whenever there was news about him on TV it was always him beating someone up.

But a family member had seen this movie and finally convinced me to watch it - which I did not regret. In fact, Russell Crowe became the very reason for me to like this movie. Like him or not, but the man is an incredibly talented actor. He impersonated his role with such credibility that it was a pleasure to watch.

I also loved the way the story was told and I don't think it was predictable at all. I liked Paul Bettany, Jennifer Connelly and Ed Harris in the supporting roles, too.

I don't know how the hell I went so long without watching this after all the awards it's won but man am I glad to have decided to give it a try. Such a beautiful film. It has also left me with a new found appreciation for Russell Crowe. Definitely favoriting this one.
