Gran lavoro di Aronofsky.Camera a spalla,regia ipercinetica,riprese sporche quasi a voler rendere "reale" la schizofrenia e lo stato di dissociazione del protagonista,che crea questo vortice misto genialità-pazzia in cui tutto,dal basso all'Altissimo,è riconducibile alle sequenze numeriche.Disturbante,schizzato e malato,con molto Lynch al suo interno: coraggioso e ben fatto, bravo Darren.
Pi is a film about the pain that accompanies passion and the fine line between madness and genius. It's about an obsessive mathematician Max Coen who's success comes hand in hand with his demise. He's desperate to know a certain truth but he brings great pain to himself in search of that truth. The ending is beautiful. Pi isn't about uncovering the secrets of the universe, it's about learning to live without them.
A curious & thrilling debut film about math, the universe, madness, & obsession. It has an unsettling use of voiceover & editing to convey his unstable life. I enjoyed how it works on 2 levels: That either he's insane and both sides that want his information are just grabbing at air or he's a genius and they're logical in their desperation for truth and prosperity.
Meh, I didn't enjoy this film so much. It had a cool, late-90's vibe to it, with the black&white style, the trance/dance music, tech madness... However the plot seemed too weird, with the 'trivia' about math just being dumped throughout the film... The whole 'sequence of numbers' thing was such an abstract idea. You didn't really know what it was, what was it for. Perhaps it was just too experimental for me.
