After a car wreck on the winding Mulholland Drive renders a woman amnesiac, she and a perky Hollywood-hopeful search for clues and answers across Los Angeles in a twisting venture beyond dreams and reality.
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
Max suggests that the Kabbalists have already tried all possible 216-digit numbers. That is 10 to the power of 215 multiplied by 9. [9x(10^215)] The result is a number length of 216 decimal digits. The number of atoms in the visible universe is only 80 digits, so it is obviously impossible for them to have tried them all. See more »
The number on the screen just before Max faints and is revived by his neighbours shows 218 digits, not 216. 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.
