Aged only twenty-eight, Darren Aronofsky scooped the Best Director Prize at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival with this extraordinary and fiercely original debut feature - a film that astonishes with the boldness of its ideas, and gatecrashes the senses in its execution.Pi
charts the efforts of mathematical genius Max Cohen to identify certain numerical patterns which, he believes, will explain the workings of the universe. He is pursued by an aggressive Wall Street firm set on financial domination, as well as a Kabblah sect convinced that Max holds the key to the secrets behind their ancient holy texts. Max races to unlock the mathematical code, hoping to defy the madness that looms before him.
This volume also contains Aronofsky's production diary, 'January 31 1996 - January 14 1998: The Guerilla Diaries', which recounts the trials and tribulations he encountered trying to make a feature film for $60,000.
With its ferocious soundtrack and monochromatic black-and-white photography, Pi
is already a cult classic.
