Overview

American Experience: A Brilliant Madness - The Story of John Nash

Mark Samels directs this documentary about schizophrenic Nobel Prize-winning mathematician John Nash, the inspiration for the Oscar-winning A Beautiful Mind. The disc of the documentary contains a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1. There are no subtitles, but the soundtrack is closed-captioned. Supplemental materials include an interview with Nash, and additional information on schizophrenia. This is a fascinating documentary, regardless of one's familiarity with the fictionalized film.
