Ventures into challenging, intelligent subject matter that few other films dare to.

This is a film that gives off a rich aroma of intellectual pursuit, but cannot digest the full intellectual and mystical meal it has cooked.

Every line of dialogue, indeed every small action, is packed with meaning in this taxingly potent film.

...like the value for pi, which has been calculated to one billion decimal places and counting, it does not fail to generate curiosity and speculation.

Delivers some thought-provoking questions about our digital age, numerology, and the hubris involved in all projects designed to decode the mystery of the universe.

An imaginative, intellectually stimulating feature-film.

Embora Aronofsky cometa excessos visuais em alguns momentos (tendência comprovada em seu trabalho seguinte, Réquiem para um Sonho), sua eficiente direção, a ótima edição e o inteligente roteiro transformam Pi em um filme singular.

April 9, 2005
An ambitious, stylish and intriguing first effort by Aronofsky and director of photography Matthew Libatique. If you're of a mind for an offbeat but fascinating film, give it a shot.

Aronofsky, who has parlayed this movie's Sundance success into two Hollywood deals, is that rare indie filmmaker who doesn't want to make hip romantic sitcoms. He's a genuine experimenter with a spooky visual style.

Even if you're the type who are intimidated by maths like me (to this day I insist that my high school maths teacher arrived at class on a broomstick!), then don't fret: adeptness at mathematics isn't a prerequisite for enjoying Pi.

Pi is certainly about the burden of genius, but it very well may also be about mythical powers and faulty dogma in Judaism.

...an opiate-induced, caffeinated, super-octane trip.

Eureka! This movie is the ultimate portrayal of the numbers racket -- a slice of pi that as sci-fi fantasy really does cut it and makes us hunger fort desserts in store as a sequel to this promising debut by Mr. Aronofsky.
January 1, 2000
A compelling and, most importantly, original science-fiction film which has that rare ability to also be believable.
April 17, 2001
Pi is a lesson to aspiring film makers everywhere: perfect your skills, be original, be bold. It's a pity young British directors aren't making films as unique and imaginative as this. Startlingly good cinema.

January 1, 2000
It's a well-toned blend of surrealism, science fiction, horror and spiritual mystery that would never have survived Hollywood's script-by-committee attitude.

I found Cohen's quest to be interesting, but it sure made me uncomfortable to watch him writing around and screaming in pain every few minutes. Then again, then the search for truth is often painful, and so is math, for some of us.
