Unsure of itself as it squirms between gritty realism and preposterous fantastical elements. It tries to be good, and mostly succeeds, but a sluggish story and confusing characters weigh down what could've been profoundly moving or enjoyably fun.
Like Christopher Nolan's Following, Pi is a black and white debut film from a pretty famous filmmaker. And like Following, it is inspiring to a filmmaker. I don't think it really knew what it wanted to do, but it was intriguing in the story and artsy and intelligent in it's style.
