π (1998)

After fourteen years I decided to watch back this incredible film that still gives me the creeps. A dark opera and a twisted nightmare that came out from the futuristic view of one of my favorite directors, Darren Aronofsky. There is maybe a thin line between insanity and genius. Max is ready to cross the boundaries as he is stuck into an unsolved mathematics theory. He tries to understand the meaning of life through numbers and unlock the universal patterns found in nature. But this research will lead him to madness and paranoia. Both a fanatic Jewish sect and a powerful street market corporation attempt to reach him and make him work for them unsuccessfully. Will Max escape from this endless trip though hell and what is the cost for finding the name of God as represented from the numbers? PI was a massive impact of this period to our teenage minds as well and still an underground surprise that haunted us for years with its delicate direction and astonishing soundtrack.
