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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
