Barnes & Noble - Gregory Baird
A little knowledge turns out to be a dangerous thing for the protagonist of this relentlessly energetic psychological thriller. While working on a system to predict stock prices, mathematics genius Max Cohen (Sean Gullette) stumbles onto a powerful secret that piques the interest of both a Wall Street brokerage house and a group of Hasidic Cabalists. The debut feature of director Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream), Pi is a stunningly assured showpiece of kinetic visual style with gorgeously grainy, high-contrast black-and-white photography, wild camera movements, and rapid-fire editing. As Max's discovery leads him to the brink of a psychotic breakdown, a throbbing electronic score by Clint Mansell, music by Autechre and Orbital, and head-spinning discussions of Pythagorean theorems and Jewish mysticism add to the heady atmosphere of paranoia. By the end, Pi produces a kind of sensory overload through a barrage of sounds, images, words, and numbers that magnificently capture the thrill and danger of an obsessive search for ultimate truth.
