Or rent Pi the documenturay on Netflix.com ( which is rated R for language/ disturbing images, I have not seen it, and I am not suggesting that I approve watching it or suggest watching it , I just put it on here to save YOU from searching for it. This movie was created in 1998, it's 85 minutes long and is a "jarring black-and-white brain-bender written and directed by Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream) is a haunting examination of science, mathematics -- and one man's haunting numerical obsession. The story follows emotionally fragile number theorist Max Cohen (Sean Gullette), who's on the trail of a 216-digit number hidden within Pi that could unlock the secrets of the stock market ... and the universe." this is what the short little overview of it says. If you are REALLY interested in watching it, it is rated R and is 85 minutes long. ) http://www.netflix.com/WiMovie/Pi/1193100?strackid=1c457e73e54ff719_0_srl&strkid=666642364_0_0&trkid=438381
