Ideas going nowhere,
This review is from: PI [DVD]  (DVD)
Pi is stylishly shot, pacey and has a fantastic soundtrack by Clint Mansell, but it felt like a long 80 minutes for me.
It seems heavily influenced by Eraserhead but lacks the dream / nightmare quality of that film.
It sets up some interesting ideas about mathematical patterns but then doesn't know what to do with them. First 40 minutes or so were great, I was bored before the end. It all seemed a bit derivative.
Not bad, certainly not easy watching, but not great either.
