Has anyone seen the independent film Pi: Faith in Chaos, directed by Darren Aronofsky, starring Sean Gullette.?

It tells the story of a haunted, fragile mathematical genius on the trail of a 216 digit number hidden in Pi that could unlock the secrets of the stock market... and the universe.

With all of the discussion here on LP regarding Pi and lottery systems some of you may be interested in seeing this film. I started watching it and it reveals some interesting number facts and theories.  This black and white film has no bells and whistles or outstanding special effects but it gives food for thought and is quite interesting nonetheless. 

From what I have seen thus far, it is worth watching. Who knows, you may get a few lottery system ideas from it. Thumbs Up

        Yes, I actually have that movie in my collection.  It's been a long time since I've watched it, maybe I'll put it back in my "to watch" stack.

        On the topic of pi, I recently found a pretty cool program that calculates however many digits of pi that you instruct it to.  It is a great way to measure your computer's raw processing power, at least where mathematical computations are concerned.  I'll put it in my blog so anyone can download it.  (Free software, no ads or nags.)

          Yes. An interesting, low budget film. Shows, they can produce quality stuff with meaning and few frills.

              Really liked the movie. It was based on the true story of a very, very brillaint and seemingly eccentric man named Dan Winter. He was allegedly harrassed by the 'government' and certain organizations because of his alleged penchant in discovering and revealing "scientific/spiritual" knowledge that people want hidden. Apparently he is forbidden by the courts in publishing new books on his material. Much of his work can be seen in pamphlets, video, and the internet. He has gone bankrupt by trying to fight what he deems was an illegal attempt to silence his freedom of speech. His broad material is at the fringes of thought, but one can still glean intriguing mathematical and physics based concepts from it.

                Are you guys talking about a film that was black and white? I saw one called Pi but it was a little out there.

                In fact, if I'm mad at someone that asks for a movie rental recommendation, I tell then to get that one.

                  That's the one, Coin Toss! I've been meaning to see it for a long time but forgot about it. Thanks for the reminder!! I heard it was a little "out there" too.

                    Yes, I believe that that is the film I am referring to.

                    You know, when you are mad at someone who asks for a movie recommendation and you tell them about Pi, you may be doing them a favor. They may get something out of it. Green laughGreen laugh

                      Good point, LottoChica! Did you see it yet? Or maybe you have seen Aronofsky's more popular film, "Requiem For A Dream." ? Another off the wall movie.

                        Yes I did see Pi. It was an interesting watch, a lot of "numbers" history there. I'll have to check out Aronofsky's other movie. Lurking

                            Nice little film. At the time I saw it, I was still in the stocks, too. It gave me a few ideas.

                            I especially liked the opening.

                            In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.
                            Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.
