Maximilian Cohen, a mathematician, believes there are patterns everywhere in nature. Because of his studies and research in which he tries to predict the behavior of the stock market, he is chased by a Wall Street company, and by an orthodox Jew follower of the Torah, who believes that these numbers are sent by God.

I can't say the performances impressed me, nor did the directing.<... read more

Pretentious and Pyschodelic

Pi is the story of a man with a possible mental illness and his obsession with numbers and some serious paranoia and hallucinations. First, it's filmed in black and white, and I tend to find that annoying. It's a cheap way of standing out without displaying any substance. From then on the movie is an film school project. The story is basic and overdone. The film is all about film techniques a... read more

Pop Culture Phenomenon Films: 90’s (1884 movies items)

" The title refers to the mathematical constant pi. The film explores themes of religion, mysticism, and the relationship of the universe to mathematics. The story, about a mathematician with an obsession to find underlying complete order in the real world, contrasts two seemingly irreconcilable entities: the imperfect irrationality of humanity; and the rigor and regularity of mathematics, specifically number theory. The film also introduced us to Darren Aronofsky, with Pi being one of his fi"

My biggest disappointments in entertainment (142 tv items)

"It's hard to explain why one would be disappointed with this movie in the first place because it is very hard to have expectations about it. When you read opinions about it, it's regarded as some kind of avant-garde masterpiece, but no one ever says why. Turns out all there is to it in this movie is the premise, there's hardly any plot in it, and whatever passes as a plot in it, is erased by its finale. Other movies like American Psycho can get away with it by being ambiguous about it and having"

What your favorite movie (really) says about you.. (57 movies items)

"If Life of Pi is your favorite movie...You are subsumed and drawn into the world of the solitary thinker, the solitary philosopher, the artist cut off from the world, questioning everything and everyone, stimulating the incessant and never-ending chattering in your skull, contemplating the ultimate and penultimate and resounding fascinating - and sometimes dark - theories about the world which we are living in, and our meaning (or lack thereof) in same.
