I must be dumb, because I just didn't "get it". I understand that pi is a mystical number, and this guy is a numbers genius, but... I don't know, I found it dry and hard to follow. The talkative hasidic jew made me just as uncomfortable as he made the protagonist, too. Stop with the talky talky, I just wanna sit here and enjoy my coffee and scribble down my formulas in peace.

I tend to agree with this point of view. While the movie is ambitious in its portrayal of the importance of math and the life of the man pursuing a greater meanining for numbers, it is a bit difficult to follow. It strives to hard for a concept that is far removed from the average person's view of the world and in the end is confused more because the rather odd life of the man investigating it. This cannot take away from the overall impact of the cinematography which is moving in that in portrays the lead actor's plight (his seizures, his paranoia) perfectly.
None of the actors particularly shine, though none should be working on daytime tv either.

3/5
