Flash Of Genius (2008)

"One day, I'm gonna invent me an intermittent-speakin wife."
At a glance:
Laborious drama about this one bloke Robert Kearns, who apparently invented (gasp) the intermittent windshield wiper on cars, back in the 60s. Some will have you believe that this is a David-Goliath story about a family man who was cheated and buried under years of litigation by Ford, rest will tell you that they're makin a hero out of a peculiarly (and ridiculously) stubborn fella who happened to patent somethin that others didn't, or were goin to anyway.

Perennial wonderment:
"Shit. No wiper can help me now, can it?"
Lead actor Greg Kinnear, one of the most underrated and underexposed Hollywood stars ever. Loved him in Auto Focus (2002) and also Little Miss Sunshine (2006). He's the sort of actor whose billin is enough to make me watch movies like that shitfest Feast Of Love (2007), though even he couldn't save it.
Reminds me of:
That other movie about a genius who loses his mind (and subsequently his loved ones) because of his occupational obsession - A Beautiful Mind (2001). Got a good balance too between courtroom drama and everyday scenes, like Erin Brockovich (2000).
Watch out for:
The 1000megawatt smile of Lauren Graham. The sweet type. Not mine.

Three stars. Kinda long at 119mins, not too sure if it was worth it but these stories need to be told. Official site very well designed too.
