Directed by: Darren Aronofsky
Starring: Sean Gullette, Mark Margolis, Ben Shenkman

"When I was six, my mother told me not to stare at the sun, so I did."

Synopsis:
Essentially, it centers around a young mathematician (number theorist) who believes that he can find a formula within the stockmarket that will allow him to predict those stocks that will profit and those that will plummet. Additionally, he has some form of mental illness that causes him to have intense seizures during stressful situations. (He attained this illness as a result of staring at the sun for an extended period as a young child.) Ultimately, the number he eventually discovers is much more important than he realizes - it has the potential of explaining God.

Visuals:
This film's cinematography is absolutely breath-taking. The entire movie is shot in a grainy black and white which adds incredibly depth to atmosphere. Moreover, the camera angles and filming techniques that the director utilized are perfectly suited to the feeling that his movie radiates.

Overall:
I highly recommend this movie. It is both entertaining and mentally stimulating; something I have found many of the more recent films to be lacking.

5/5
