I can't remember
what she came here for

I can't remember
much of anything
anymore




I just watched this for the first time. Having seen Requiem for a Dream many times, I expected Pi to be an easier movie to watch. It turned out to be the exact opposite, though. The way it was shot was, while beautiful, horrifying. It's also a much more surreal film than Requiem. While it built up, I was getting tense. At the end, when he took a power drill to his head , I got a sick feeling in my stomach. Basically what I'm trying to say is that Arnofsky (who is probably my favorite director now) makes movies all about immersion, and Pi is probably the best example. I'd highly recommend it to anyone who wants a complex mindfuck of a movie with a surreal, immersing feel to it.

5/5
