197- A Beautiful Mind (2001)

bingo !

bingo !

Russell Crowe does a good bit of acting in his portrayal of John Ross a mathematician who goes a bit nuts as he develops into a paranoid-schizophrenic. John thinks he’s working as a code breaker for the U.S.A. ,trying to crack the location of a Russian nuclear bomb on american soil.He isn’t. In fact he’s just cutting up newspapers and wrecking his wife’s head.He gets carted off to the mental for a bit,gets well then relapses.Pretty good film over-all.Keep a lookout for the the two nerd friends from Dazed and Confused playing two nerd friends in this too.Musical score is a bit heavy in parts,bringing in the strings when you need to be all weepy.
