It was inevitable this would happen. I ran into a movie i did not like. I am not saying in any way that “Pi” is a bad movie, I just don’t honestly understand it near enough to be able to say that it is. The second the credits started rolling, i found myself asking myself, “what the hell did I just watch?” I was really excited going into this movie. I love Darren Aronofsky. I think he is a fantastic filmmaker. His movies always seem to hit a certain cord. I loved “The Wrestler,” “Black Swan,” and “Requiem for a Dream.” He has a talent to make you feel. He pulls you into the world of the character and you feel every emotion they feel, you feel their pain, you feel scared for them. With “Pi” I just didn’t feel anything.
To be honest, I do plan to revisit this movie later in the future to see if my view on it changes. I hope that I will like it in the future and I just didn’t understand it this time, I just don’t see that happening to be honest. I know a lot of people love this movie, I just don’t see why. I did not see the appeal to it. I would not really recommend this movie unless you’re wanting to watch an extremely “what the fuck” movie.
