Overview

Pi

Darren Aronofsky scripted and made his directorial debut with this experimental feature with mathematical plot threads hinting at science-fictional elements. In NYC's Chinatown, recluse math genius Max (Sean Gullette) believes "everything can be understood in terms of numbers," and he looks for a pattern in the system as he suffers headaches, plays Go with former teacher Sol Robeson (Mark Margolis), and fools around with an advanced computer system he's built in his apartment. Both a Wall Street company and a Hasidic sect take an interest in his work, but he's distracted by blackout attacks, hallucinations, and paranoid delusions. Filmed in 16mm black-and-white, the Kafkaesque film features music by Clint Mansell (of the UK's Pop Will Eat Itself band). Shown at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival where Aronofsky won the drama directing award.

This movie is intelligently directed, the misery Max is experiencing is easy to understand and feel. The title may not be a multiple view sort of film, but it is more then worth watching. 'Samuel Chen, I am a Movie Expert' may be a movie expert but writes pretty boring reviews, way to back up your opinion.

I bought this DVD. The movie is OK, but I'd rent it, not buy it. I buy DVDs because of the excellent quality of the work and I will probabley watch again. But with Pi, I'll never watch it again. Want to buy my Pi DVD?-great condition, only used once! KLP

This is the worst film I have ever seen - a mathematical thriller is an awful idea and the film is even worse! One word - No. No no no!
