Rus­sell Crowe prob­a­bly should have won his sec­ond Os­car for his role in Ron Howard’s ex­cel­lent film about the life of fa­mous math­e­ma­ti­cian John Forbes Nash, but that’s an­other story. Crowe cer­tainly left us with an­other out­stand­ing per­for­mance as the bril­liant but tor­tured Nash who en­dured a life­long strug­gle with schizophre­nia – ge­nius and de­mons some­how find­ing a way to co-ex­ist. In 1994, John Nash was awarded the No­bel prize in eco­nom­ics. Howard turns the movie into some­thing of a tear­jerker to­wards the end, but in the main it suc­ceeds ad­mirably.
