The presidencies of Kennedy and Johnson, the events of Vietnam, Watergate, and other historical events unfold through the perspective of an Alabama man with an IQ of 75, whose only desire is to be reunited with his childhood sweetheart.
This is the second-to-shortest featurette on the 2-Disc Award Edition DVD of A Beautiful Mind, with a running time of eight and a half minutes. After a brief introduction by Howard(whose bit it goes back to a couple of times after that), we join him in an interview with the real Nash. He explains and goes through some maths, game theory and other of the things he was such an expert at. Just as Ron said, the man is much looser and less restrained than in more social situations, and this certainly is interesting. They filmed it with two cameras and cut it together, and this is concise and doesn't waste any time. I don't understand most of what he talks about, so I really can't comment on that, or on how he describes it. Since this is a casual setup from a technical standpoint, the quality of both video and sound are below the standard we are used to. The focus here is on what is said and how, not on cinematography or artistry in the presentation. That is really the only thing that affects my rating negatively. There is no offensive material in this. I recommend this to anyone who wants to, well, "meet" him. 6/10
