Darren Aronofsky’s films are generally not casual viewing – his first film, Pi (1998) sets the stage for his career in this regard with its psychotic tone and artistic choices. Pi is a movie which cannot be recommended for everyone, but it is well worth viewing for those interested in psychological thrillers and/or Aronofsky films. The plot of the movie could be summed as thusly: Jewish mathematician Max Cohen (Sean Gullette) discovers a number sequence that unlocks the secrets of the universe while battling with his inner demons. He must also avoid those seeking to steal the sequence and try to distinguish friend from foe. Crazy, right?
