Pi screening London Darren AronofskyLionsgate are holding a Pi: 15th Anniversary Launch Party & Screening at the Alibi London tonight and you are invited! Everyone knows how much I love Darren Aronofsky's Pi in my opinion it's one of the 131 greatest films ever made. A clever gritty black & white film blurring genius, isolation, paranoia and conspiracy theories of global proportions an increasingly tightly wound story - what's not to love?

Aronofsky's 1988 debut feature Pi goes against the grain of the Hollywood machine and is an astounding film not just in terms of a creative endeavour and technical proficiency (on a shoestring budget) - but he introduces brilliant, complex concepts in an engaging way tapping into the zeitgeist of the times as well as ahead of the Hollywood curve - stimulating an eager audience, that had an awaiting a film that satisfied on both an intellectual and entertainment level.

  In his stunning debut feature film, Aronofsky tells the story of Maximillian Cohen’s (Sean Gullette) obsession with numbers and his theory that they hold the key to the answers of the universe. His work causes him agonising migraines and his former teacher Sol (Mark Margolis) advises him to take a break from trying to discover patterns in the stock market. When Max's super computer crashes after spitting out a 216-digit number, Max initially dismisses it, until the prediction comes true, and he realises that the number which he consigned to the trash could be the key he has been searching for.
Not only is Pi a visual experience but the carefully selected music, which notably includes an original piece Pi (Symbol)r2 from Clint Mansell, blurs the lines between the character's fiction and reality even further, enhancing the films moods as it conveys the increasingly confused state of mind of Sean Gullette's Maximillian Cohen.

The soundtrack adds to a rich immersive cinematic experience as well as can be enjoyed as a standalone piece of  art.
