A Beautiful Mind
The film is like a sumptuous dinner complete with tickling appetizers, gratifying main course, superfluous side dishes, and quenching drinks plus pleasurable desserts. It makes one full to the stomach. After taking in, digesting, and absorbing it, it makes one fully satisfied without wanting to have the coffee anymore. It makes one say I had a great meal or should we say That is a great film.
The totality of the film, A Beautiful mind, is very satisfying and fulfilling. Everything and anything in it is so appetizing, right from the start until the end. One would be so absorbed with the movie that one would be transported into the world of the brilliant mathematician, John Nash.
It is a captivating film that invites us in his quest of finding himself and of learning to live life along with his other companions namely: Charles, a friend; Marcee, a little child; and William, the boss. They will take us to a journey of reaching one’s dreams and aspirations with lots of discoveries, surprises, side dishes and desserts along.
The story began on John Nash’s life in graduate school, where he struggled with peer and academic pressures. He found a friend that helped him through with these pressures until he did discover something that is worth publishing and had a good placement. With his intelligence and talent in code breaking, he becomes entangled in a mysterious conspiracy in which only his devoted wife can help him.
To begin with, the story itself is beautiful. The real John Nash’s life is alone an interesting story to make a movie out of it. Ron Howard and Brian Brazer successfully directed and produced John Nash’s life story into an exceptionally good film. It has great cinematography, with the smooth transition from one setting to another, perfect picture and atmosphere of the film, and other great good shots. The actors’ make up also looks very real, especially in the last part when the characters aged. They indeed deserved the Academy Award.
The dialogue of the movie is also a good factor that led in the greatness of the movie. It is like the garnishing of the meal. The movie’s play of words made a lasting impact to the audience as well as to the film itself. Russel Crowe’s lines, suited perfectly to the intellectual character he is portraying. In short, they have a very good script and that is a verifiable empirical data to mention.
The film is brought to life by the great actors it has. Russel Crowe successfully portrayed the dynamic character of John Nash from being the aloof weird young man to the friendly and humorous older man, and not to mention being the crazy John Nash. He acted every detail of John Nash’ character spontaneously from the way he walks, talks, and even gestures his mannerisms. Russel Crowe’s facial expression are also very distinct and his acting as the old John Nash was perfect.
Another essential merit of the film is the twist of the story, which is successfully and perfectly performed. You would be caught unaware of the drastic turn. No one would have an idea that there would be a surprising and drastic change in the later part of the story. The twist successfully placed the audience’ feelings right where the producer wanted it at the moment one least expects it.
It also made the audience confused for one would not know what was real and what was not. One gets to wonder what happened in reality. You have to play the movie back in your mind and determine which were John Nash’ delusions and reality. One fears getting crazy figuring it out. More or less like the feeling of the lost crazy John Nash, which is disadvantageous to some audience who will not be able to understand and much more appreciate. But it is challenging to any genius to unfold. It gets them to struggle being sane again.
The over hiding of the twist is like the chili sauce served with the main course. It bites the tongue. As a result some people will miss, or say not appreciate or understand the main course. But when the chili sauce is accepted, a satisfying dinner would result.
A bountiful dinner

Orwell is presenting the world of 1984 as a satiric statement of what might come to pass, though of course its exact form could never be predicted, if the world did not become aware of the terrible problems facing it, not in 1984, but here and now. Orwell wrote the novel not as a prediction, but as a warning.

Robert BurnsRobert Burns Robert Burns is a man of the most impassioned temper; with passions not strong only, but noble, and of the sort in which great virtues and great poems take their rise. It is his love towards his country, people, and nature that inspires him. That opens his eyes to its beauty, leading his heart and voice to praise them with his passion. Robert Burns was born January 25, 1759, in a straw-thatched cottage, to William and Agnes Burns. His mother had a great store of folklore songs and b
Samuel Coleridge- Frost at MidnightSamuel Coleridge- Frost at Midnight Samuel Coleridge’s: Frost at Midnight In the poem, Frost at Midnight, Samuel Coleridge uses his creative imagery and fascination with nature to create a beautiful picture of the gifts God has given him and us. He uses a style of prose, which has no particular rhyme or meter. This could be used to help convey his meaning in a more storylike way. The poem is broken down into four paragraphs of varying length and all, primarily, deal with nature. The poem start
Samuel Taylor ColeridgeSamuel Taylor Coleridge Samuel Taylor Coleridge, to those who know and understand his poems well, exists in three modes, as Philosopher, Poet, Friend. If the truth were told, we should all be obliged to admit that the Philosopher escapes us. It is the opinion of many that Coleridge as Poet is almost equally an evanescent shadow; and though the many are in this quite mistaken, they have some excuse for thinking thus, because his fulfillment falls far short of his promise. Due to Coleridge’s compl

Following Hester\'s act of adultery, she became pregnant with a baby girl whom she named Pearl. From the first moment that we are introduced to Pearl in N

As it passed by me, the whirlwind scooped up a dormant pile of leaves lying next to the oak tree. The leaves appeared to come alive twisting, turning, and dancing about the meadow.
