This is a paranoid flick you can’t miss out on
A pretty nice film, just make sure you are stable enough to watch it
Story: the intellectual icarus. Preemptive of later works as diverse as Limitless and AHS. Psychological thriller par excellence.
Very well executed. Mathematic, paranoid movie
Its good but like too weird at times. Definitely the prerequisite to Requiem for a Dream
arnold the shrink looks different here :/
You have no idea how big of an impact this had on my life! Definitely made it part of my personality
Really makes you wonder how much of divinity we can digest
crazy film, crazy plot, crazy mathematical theory... But beyond the craziness the anxiety & paranoia is what is captured beautifully here
