DreamWorks has "Antz", and Pixar has "A Bug's Life". The indi-film contribution to the whole "Ant" thing this summer is "Pi"."What do ants have to do with pi," you ask. I don't know. But I kind of fear them now. I don't know if what I got out of this movie is what everybody else got out of this movie, but I'm leavin' those fellas alone from now on. Or maybe I will use them for investment strategies.
Then there are the Jewish people. They scare the hell out of me too now. [Note to Holytoads: If I ever said anything bad about you, then I'm sorry. And I love the way you dress. Don't hurt me.]
The only bad thing I can really say about the movie without giving things away, is that it attracts a certain undesirable clientele. I'm not talking gangs, terrorists, or small children. I'm talking Mathematicians. Number theorists, numerologists, and the sort. They are very excited about this movie, and these people are too excitable as it is. I sat right behind one of these men in the theater, and he had me on edge the entire time. And it wasn't just the fact that I could smell his hair from 2 feet away, it just something about these brainiacs that has me wondering.
But after Pi, I stopped wondering, and starting planning my defense.
<< Post-note: 9/1/98 >> It has come to my attention that I reviewed this movie, but stated nothing of what the movie is actually about. Man you fuckers are picky!
The story follows a Number Theorist, who believes that after staring at the Sun for too long, he can find a patern in the way the stock market works. During his research, he stumbles onto something much bigger then that. And there are people who know that he knows. And they want what he knows. Even the jews want it.
Of course, you could have just trusted me and gone and seen the movie for yourself. << end Post-note >>Even though there is a great danger in going to the theater with these freaky folks, I do suggest going, just for Pi. And if you don't like it, pretend to. I think they can read my thoughts.
