Pi (1998) – 4/5
I gave this an extra half point b/c it was independent. I didn’t so much care for the film development technique which was distracting at times. I like the idea of doing something different and in ’98 that might have been cool, but I wasn’t into it this time.
I like the story and the way the numbers work out and the mystery of it all.
After watching it one day, I watched w/ the commentary the next day. For independent movies, how they did things is pretty interesting.
I thought the actors did a good job and the story is compelling enough to enjoy. I don’t think they pulled off what “Primer” did, but it’s along those lines. I think in ’98 it wd have been on par w/ that, but not today.
