As Good As It Gets | Jack Nicholson, Helen Hunt | 50 Films I Love | Film Companion
As Good as it Gets is one of my favourite love stories. It has predictable beats but the writing, dialogue and performances – the two lead actors won Oscars – push it to another level.
Brooks tells this story with simplicity. At one point, Simon says, “You look at someone long enough, you discover their humanity.” The humanity is what comes through most strongly.
