This movie was made for academic purposes and uses a re-edited material of Darren Aronofsky's movie
The sequence where 'The Swede' is murdered in his hotel room is IDENTICAL to one in Pi (1998), where Max Cohen's door is shaking during an intense migraine. In Pi the door bursts open to pure white (culminating in a fade to white), and in The Killers, intense light bursts through to reveal the Swede's killers. Also note the reaction shot of Max and the Swede to the door 'jiggling' -- Their framing and positioning on the bed is identical, and so too is the editing sequence of door shot to face shot etc... A long and overt homage.

There are two moments it references PI, from Darren Aronofsky. At the moment Paul and Christina are having lunch and he starts to talk about Mathemathics in everything around, coming to a superior stuff, and a few seconds later, when the cam aims to the Sun, just like did Max Cohen (Sean Gullette's character in PI).
