A Brilliant Madness, The John Nash Documentary

Known for Nash Equilibrium, John Nash is one of the largest contributors to Game Theory.

Documentary Summary: Nash had a thing for, and approached mathematical problems from different standpoints since childhood. Some consider him a genius, I think he simply had a lot of deliberate practice off to his passion for problem solving. Long story short, he was kind of a dick in his younger days, was then hospitalized and classified as a schizo, later recovered and received a Nobel Prize. He's still alive today, I think.
