From John himself, however, we get to experience a more internal side of the illness, with depictions of hallucinations and delusions along with outward symptoms like awkward facial expressions and slurred, jumbled passages of speech. In showing both the internal and external sides of schizophrenia through the experiences of both Alicia and John, the film brings a pleasing sense of balance to the topic of mental health. Something else that the film does very effectively is show that schizophrenia, and more broadly any mental illness, is never a single cure type of problem.
The film was directed by Ron Howard and written by Akiva Goldsman. It was inspired by a bestselling, Pulitzer Prize-nominated book of the same name by Sylvia Nasar. The story begins in the early years of Nash's life at Princeton University as he develops his "original idea" that will revolutionize the world of mathematics.
This movie contains examples of: To be a genius, then have one's mind disabled? Sol tries to convince John to continue taking his medication, telling him there's other things besides work. Camera cuts to a pacifier lying on a table while his son cries in the background Award-Bait Song: And he does it with one word You ever just know something, Doctor?
The windows, based on a real habit of Nash's. He is a brilliant and successful graduate student and later mathematics professor but is a socially clumsy loner with schizophrenia.
Gifted mathematician who is also a paranoid schizophrenic. Justified as Nash doesn't like meeting new people with the type of condition he has. Seen best in how he tries to get a woman to have sex with him.
Do You Want to Copulate? I don't exactly know what I am required to say in order for you to have intercourse with me. But could we assume that I said all that. I mean essentially we are talking about fluid exchange, right? So could we go just straight to the sex.
Dumbass Has a Point: When explaining the sinister Soviet conspiracy currently underway across the US, Parcher notes " McCarthy is an idiot, but unfortunately that doesn't make him wrong".
Of course, Parcher is one of Nash's hallucinations and the entire conspiracy doesn't exist, so Joe McCarthy really is just an idiot. Ron Howard hired actual mathematics professors to hand double for Crowe during the writing sequences to make sure all of his equations were mathematically accurate.
Nash develops his theory out of his friends' fighting over a girl. Not that the explanation he gives is anything like Nash's real contributions to game theory.
And he finally determines that his hallucinations aren't real after realizing preteen Marcie hasn't aged in all the years he's known her.
The college guys see a group of co-eds and all start talking about how they all want the blonde. There are small hints about Nash's increasing schizophrenia, like when Marcie is running through the flock of pigeons, none of them fly away from her.
All three hallucinatory characters are first heard before they're seen, as real schizophrenic delusions tend to be auditory before they become visual.A Beautiful Mind is definitely the type of movie that wins over the academy every year.
