fine work
Altho the writing's sketchy here and there, I'm gonna go along with the majority opinion on this and say that here is perhaps Ron Howard's finest work, the jarring twist mid-film lasting until the end of the work as another math genius gets tried by their own I.Q. and bigtime (see "Proof"). Strangely, this is Connelly's film as the long suffering wife who takes the audience (us) by the hand and shows us "this is not real!" Liked Proof better, but whatcha gonna do?

'Beautiful' movie
Originally watched this for a Psychology class, but ended up getting it afterwards. Great insight into the life of a troubled man. Fantastic list of actors with a great script. Since it's been out for a while, it's pretty cheap. Practically nothing to pick it up for a movie night.

A Beautiful Movie
I think its a good idea to know as little as possible about this movie before seeing it. Now that I've seen it, the commercials on television seem to be giving away too much. With that in mind DO NOT READ THIS IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT!

Its a hard movie to pinpoint. Its not like any other movie I've ever seen, in that a character exists that is not real. John Nash's mind is the reality of the movie and its not until the movie is half over that you realize this and its jarring that you've been taken on a ride with this man's illness, and accepted it as the real world. Its also a very heartbreaking thing.

From the middle point, John and you see the world differently because he starts to receive treatment.

Russell Crowe does not overdo it for a minute and turns in his customary brilliant performance. Would not surprise me at all if he were to win his second Best Actor Oscar in March 2002. He really is that good.

Just as good but with less screen time is the beautiful and beautifully talent Jennifer Connelly, who the world may finally get to see in a mainstream movie. Her chemistry with Crowe is vital to the movie and neither of them disappoint the audience at all in that respect.

I enjoyed it immensely and felt like I had seen a movie when it was over. I was shown a person at their best and the worse and everything in between, by a masterful actor at the top of his game.

I am sure Ron Howard deserves a lot of credit that he won't get, too.

From Opie to Arrested Development, Ron Howard is a genius
Who'd have thought Opie would turn out to be a fantastic director?

The story of John Nash is cleverly told in Ron Howard's A Beautiful Mind. Watching the movie a few times, you may find tricks that were used to subtly show the difference between reality and what John Nash viewed as reality.

Jennifer Connelly plays his beautiful, distressed wife, who tries to live with John Nash as he slowly loses grip with reality.

Russell Crowe, not known for his humble, sensitive side, does a fantastic job as the stuttering, shy John Nash.

A wonderful, beautiful film worth seeing a few times about one of the most brilliant, if not most interesting, mathematicians to ever live.

Life, math and dementia
This movie was fun and scary. I enjoyed the protagonist's struggles to succeed at school, but when he began having visions I found the movie stressful and dark. This guy has a patient wife, thats for sure. All in all, this is a great movie to sit down and watch, just be prepared for the shift from awesome to scary.

One of my favorites.
A great drama - I own it. Crowe is something else in this movie. I really think this film solidified him as one of the great male actors of our time. Top 20 anyway, there are a bunch.
