On 12 August, Lionsgate UK releases Pi: 15th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray, one of the most original examples of cult classic independent American cinema and the birth of a great filmmaker.
In his stunning 1998 debut feature film, Oscar nominated director Darren 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.
