Pi - Faith in Chaos

This original work focuses on an obsessed math prodigy. A strange numeric pattern thrown up by the fluctuations of the stock market, which only he can see, drives him even further into number-madness. Not helping at all, he is pursued by a group of Hassidic researchers who think he may have hit on the lost name of God. Maybe a bit of DIY Black and Decker cranial surgery will make sense of it all. A very impressive debut from co-writer and director Darren Aronofsky.
