Heartlessly inaccurate, exploitative, and slandering. It takes mental illness along with John Nash's life and unsympathetically lies to you just to earn Oscars. It portrays the mentally ill as violent and the mental health world as an Heartlessly inaccurate, exploitative, and slandering. It takes mental illness along with John Nash's life and unsympathetically lies to you just to earn Oscars. It portrays the mentally ill as violent and the mental health world as an incompetent sham of an institution. It fabricates and overstates virtually every aspect of John Nash's life for the sake of more melodrama. It's not impossible to think that the mentally ill were further stigmatized and slandered by this astronomically overstated portrayal of both schizophrenia and John Nash's own experience with it. It's so mind-bendingly insensitive and callous to its source material that it's an unrestrained travesty that it exists, much less win eight Oscars. It shamelessly deceives solely for that purpose alone. Deserves no praise, since it is all manufactured exclusively for that. Expand

too conventional and too sweet considering that it's about an unconventional life of a genius mathematician. certainly not the best of 2001 ( a great year for movies).

Sugar-coated, inaccurate and manipulative drivel that is only rescued from the depths of utter unwatchability by Connely's stand-out performance.

This guy, Nash, going to an ivy league school should have been able to
research possible causes of psychosis/delirium. Could he not suspect
heavy metals such as lead, with his extensive training? The doctors
refuse to detox patients? How hard is it for people to understand lead
poisoning and the dangers of heavy metals? The doctors could have used
heavy metal chelation. They could do it for the navy in the 1960's but
for regular people no? Mr Nash should have had proper treatment,
instead of them leaving him sick and calling it an awful illness. Then,
glamorizing it as a Hollywood spectacle. Come on help these poor
people.
