'A Beautiful Mind' presents Crowe with another the opportunity to alternate his tough guy roles ('Gladiator') with 'serious acting' (see 'The Insider'). Here he plays John Nash, the mathematics genius, during his college days in America in the 1940s. Nash is also a paranoid-schizophrenic, who was nevertheless awarded the Nobel Prize late in his life. On the negative side of the equation, Howard's direction stinks. His efforts to make math interesting fail dismally. A for Oscars effort, but C for contribution to the field of biopic cinema.
