Max is a genius mathematician who's built a supercomputer at home that provides something that can be understood as a key for understanding all existence. Representatives both from a Hasidic cabalistic sect and high-powered Wall Street firm hear of that secret and attempt to seduce him. Written by
The scene where Max is rebuilding his computer after stomping on it shows him soldering components onto various circuit boards. Both the soldering iron and the solder he is using is of the wrong type for that type of work. The tip on the iron is way too large which would not only prevent him from performing accurate work, it would also transfer too much heat to the integrated circuits, risking serious damage. No one with even a basic knowledge of soldering would use an iron like that for that purpose. See more »
9:13, Personal note: When I was a little kid my mother told me not to stare into the sun. So once when I was six I did. The doctors didn't know if my eyes would ever heal. I was terrified, alone in that darkness. Slowly, daylight crept in through the bandages, and I could see. But something else had changed inside of me. That day I had my first headache.

Finding God through the ancient language of Mathematics
Pi is the oddest, hippest, most chilling account of the descent into the abyss.
Following mathematical clues derived from an analysis of the stock market, Maximillian Cohen begins his descent into madness as he attempts to discover the nature of everything through the peculiar numerical entity known as Pi.
Thrilling enough, but then combine with generous amounts of Kaballistic mysticism, black and white footage and a soundtrack like an audible fractal, and you have a sensory snare which drags you along for the ride into Max's impending breakdown.
Obsession has never been so exciting.
Pi is an utterly gut-wrenching, mind expanding phenomema. If you have ever wondered about the universe, God or the nature of insanity, Pi will take you where you don't want to go.
