Pi ★★★★½

This psychological thriller marking Darren Aronofsky's directorial debut is an mind-bending exercise through surrealism that really works. Aronofsky's use his surrealistic style in which shows influence of David Lynch and uses to an electrifying advantage while lending a hand on enthralling themes of God and Judaism. The film crackles with suspense as it builds up a startling climax that places complex questions of religion, psychology, and the numeric theory while pummeling the audience with gripping thrills. And Aronofsky's makes the smart of using black-and-white cinematography to suite the unsettling atmosphere. Lastly, we shall not forget the genuine performance delivered by Sean Gullette in the lead, the man really knocks the ball out of the park. Above all, Pi is a top-notch psychological thriller enterprise that deserve your attention.
