I cannot believe I have not seen this movie until now. All the time you hear of movies regarded for how excellent and riveting they are, but rarely do I hear of A Beautiful Mind. Perhaps it is because I simply am not paying attention at the time or that a movie from 2002 is simply too old of a movie and not cool enough as today’s over exaggerated CGI in sacrifice of an amazing plot.
A Beautiful Mind simply soared above my expectations. I had expected much of it after hearing high praise from friends, and I was not disappointed in the least. I feel that today’s movies are often produced at a whim to simply raise revenue but at the cost of adding depth to the film. This movie was not one of those films.
For those of you who have not seen the film, it chronicles the life of an extraordinary man, John Nash, challenged with extraordinary circumstances. John strives to live his life while being ravaged from the own constraints of his mind. For him, reality is one with imagination; nightmares fuse with wondrous dreams. Driven by love and helped by the care of his loved ones, John takes a journey into the depths of his mind and faces the terrors that await him.
The movie is not short on suspense nor action and is well supported with humor and drama; it has simply blown my mind. Perhaps I may be exaggerating the true quality of A Beautiful Mind, but then again, I hope to whomever reads this to watch it for yourself and see if I am proven otherwise.
Be faithful in small things because it is in them that your strength lies.
He who has faith has… an inward reservoir of courage, hope, confidence, calmness, and assuring trust that all will come out well - even though to the world it may appear to come out most badly.” —(via eilatanthl)
