ANGELIKA’S NOTE

God and man and math: The tawdry meets the Talmudic in this complex thriller about a tortured computer genius trying to beat the stock market. PI is a Sundance Film Festival Directing Award winner & Grand Jury Prize nominee that launched the career of now-Oscar nominated director Darren Aronofsky (REQUIEM FOR A DREAM). Filmed on 16mm high contrast black and white, resulting in a signature raw look that put Aronofsky on the map. Time Out raves, “Maths meets millennial doom in one of the decade's true originals.”

SYNOPSIS

Numbers whiz Max Cohen (Sean Gullette) is stunted by psychological delusions of paranoia and debilitating headaches. He lives in a messy Chinatown apartment, where he tinkers with equations and his homemade, super-advanced computer. One day, however, Cohen encounters a mysterious number. Soon after reporting his discovery to his mentor (Mark Margolis) and to a religious friend (Ben Shenkman), he finds himself the target of ill-intentioned Wall Street agents bent on using the number for profit.
