I would thank myself for knowing so little about this movie, about the genius mathematician John Nash, before I watched it. This movie is unique in that it tells a true story based on the life of John Forbes Nash Jr, whose life was suddenly changed by the diagnosis with paranoid schizophrenia. With the love and assistance from his wife and friends, he conquered his inner devil and returned to win the Nobel Prize in 1994 for his breakthrough in economics with his theory put up during his years in Princeton University.
He saw the world in a way no one could have imagined. 这句话印在了A Beautiful Mind的海报封面上。
It is common for people to imagine two little men arguing against each other on various topics and all choices we made. However, this is not true for Nash. In the story, he is able to see the real figure, and he can touch them, even talk to them. The near-physical existence of those imaginary figures results in Nash’s complete and jeopardous mix-up of the real and the unreal. He was misguided by his imaginary figures: he was told to crack top-secret codes with his intelligence and to write his ideas in a classified letter and then put the letter into a secret mailbox, all of which were made up by himself. Not having this disease, it is unlikely for us to experience, or even imagine, the arduous pain of being trapped within one’s own mind. I was suddenly reminded of an idea which everyone must have ever had – one day, we woke up in the morning and found that our past were just a dream; all what we had had experiences were made up by our mind. Such idea was fantastic, but now I think, is pathetic. To some extent, we were basing our joys and imagines on other’s disaster. Isn’t it sad that normal people were so eager to experience the fantasy brought by mix-up of the dream and the reality?
A young man who had spent 16 years of life struggling through delusional phobia and paranoid hallucinations commented on IMDb, saying that he had to “keep thinking over and over to keep delusion away from reality, and to know what was really going on and what wasn’t.” A man without strong will won’t go through such mental torture. For some moments, I thought Nash would end up in a blank and delusive dead end because the imaginative figures kept appearing in his life. But he utilized logic to deduce what’s real and what wasn’t. The most powerful weapon, for Nash, was logic. Maybe that’s what makes a mathematician, or, maybe that’s what makes a hero in history.
Heard its name, i think maybe it's just a worm-kind movie. But I'm wrong when I saw it today.It's an amazing movie I ever seen before. I think maybe someone didn't understand why call it a beautiful mind, even when he saw the movie. I found the speech that John won the Noble Prize delivered.
Of course, the power of love shouldn’t be underestimated. In the movie, when Nash was addressing at the Nobel Prize Ceremony, he owed his success and his persistence to the love of his wife. It’s unbelievable that when her partner had difficulty telling the differences between delusion and reality, she would accompany him and help him go through all the sufferings. This love story is similar to the one between Steven Hawking and his wife, both of which show that the power of love can help each other become stronger. However, not fully knowing their stories, I can’t tell some more meaningful words other than the word of praise.
It's not your brain, is your mind.
Okay, you can find by yourself or just imagine another name for it.
Regarding the film itself, it stands out with the best directors, best actors, best music and what’s the most important, the best screenplay. It’s good for people who are tired of pointless action movies and meaningless humorous movies to enjoy an immersive experience of humanity.
