Movie of the Week 8.30pm, One

M. 1998. Bril­liant depic­tion of men at war by di­rec­tor Ter­rence Mal­ick, set dur­ing the Pa­cific cam­paign, from the James Jones novel and brought to life with a huge cast. Re­al­is­tic bat­tle se­quences and ex­traor­di­nar­ily beau­ti­ful cin­e­matog­ra­phy may be lost on the small screen, but it re­mains a unique movie ex­pe­ri­ence. Parts were filmed in north Queens­land. 9pm, Ten, Ten SC

M. 2001. Re­mark­able story of John Forbes Nash Jr, a bril­liant physi­cist whose life was dis­rupted by the on­set of schizophre­nia. Rus­sell Crowe is ex­tra­or­di­nary in the role as a man who slowly re­alises his mind is not nor­mal and fights to dis­tin­guish be­tween re­al­ity and delu­sion. A fine, in­volv­ing drama from di­rec­tor Ron Howard.
