"Beautiful mind" is a drama about a real genius and full of humanity. Nash, who is handsome and strange in character, has made amazing discoveries in the field of mathematics in his early years and began to enjoy international reputation. However, Nash suffered from paranoid schizophrenia, which changed his brilliant career at the highest academic level. In the face of this disease which destroyed many people, Nash, with the help and support of his wife Alicia, fought between ID and ego with his wife's deep love and strong will. He finally overcame this terrible challenge and won the Nobel Prize in economics in 1994.
Throughout the film, Nash has three hallucinations.
One is Charles Nash's college roommate, a Portuguese. Charles and Nash's rigid personality are completely opposite. When Nash is attacked and ridiculed, when he falls into anxiety and despair, he always encourages Nash and admits that he is a genius. Undoubtedly, what he needs most is such recognition and affirmation. The appearance of Charles is a symbol of Nash's hallucination.
The second illusion is the Defense Department official patcher, which is produced by Nash's hero complex. We can find that there is a hero complex in American movies. Nash, the protagonist, is eager to make great achievements in his career. However, due to the trouble of schizophrenia, he encounters a huge obstacle in his academic research.
The last illusion is that the little girl, Matthew, can be seen as a projection of Nash's true self: lonely, helpless and in need of being caressed by others. After removing the mask of genius, Nash is essentially such a pure and poor big child. The higher a great man has, the more lonely and helpless he will feel.
When Nash is still immersed in hallucinations, unable to distinguish the reality and the true from the false, and is firmly controlled by the hallucination, the most important character in the film, Alicia, Nash's wife, is on the stage. She stands by Nash's side with iron like will and no complaints. Even though Nash can't meet her sexual needs due to schizophrenia, and even put their children in the bathtub, almost When she was drowned, Nash asked her to leave. Alicia never gave up on him. As Alicia said: "sometimes I hate Nash, I hate God, but when I look at Nash and tell myself that he is my prince charming, I become a person who loves him. Although it is not many times, it is enough. "
When I watched this film, I was deeply moved by Alicia's unswerving love. Alicia has a beautiful heart. It is this beautiful heart that deeply loves Nash and has always been committed to him, which helped him overcome the terrible schizophrenia. Only then can Nash have such a great achievement. Alicia's love in Nash's conscious
It is an important bridge between the unconscious and NASH. As Nash said in the award: love is a special feeling, there is no logic to judge.
When Nash was diagnosed with schizophrenia, Nash fought against the disease for his beloved academic research and his wife. When he was firmly controlled by hallucinations, he still knew that his wife's love was true, and he was still struggling for his beloved cause. Nash had a strong and beautiful heart and finally fought against the ID and ego In the struggle, he realized the superego, coexisted with the three illusions, and achieved remarkable academic achievements.
Beautiful heart, just like Nash's strong will, just like Alicia's infinite love for NASH, is the beautiful soul they have, can return to reality on the cliff of schizophrenia! When ID and ego fight so fiercely in life, superego can be realized. When the ID and self achieve superego together, it is time to achieve important achievements.
