To each their own but I thought it was one of the best movies of the year,
several years in fact. Of course if somebody wrote a fictional story about
a young man doing brilliant work in mathematics then developing severe
schizophrenia and then becoming a campus joke as he wandered around
Princeton for 35 years making wild gestures and talking to himself and then
getting better and then winning the Nobel Prize, I'd say it was pap too; however
in this case it really happened. Truth really is stranger than fiction. Best acting
I've ever seen too.
