Visually Stunning Tale
November 24th, 2012 [5:56:17]
 7/10

cress: The Life of Pi is a beautiful film, with almost each shot being a master's stroke by Ang Lee. Lee truly is a great filmmaker, and this film lets him employ his visual mind with a rich and vibrant canvas. The 3D is excellent, some of the best I've seen. Some 3D films tend to lose their "3D-ishness" after a while, once your eyes have been locked on the screen for some time. But here it is noticeable throughout, and gives Lee's visuals a brilliant luster and vibrancy.

The young Pi, on the boat throughout the film, does a good job of conveying the needed emotions. But I was never emotionally attached to his plight, such as, for example, Tom Hanks and Wilson in "Castaway." The older Pi (portrayed by Khan--forgot his first name) is excellent, and found I was more emotionally invested with him. Rafe Spall is a bit annoying, continuing a theme for him in 2012, as he was also a dip in Prometheus. The standout performance goes to Richard Parker, the bengal tiger. I don't know how much wad CGI, but he truly was a sight to behold.

There are some interesting themes on God and religion, and Pi's perspective on them would leave even the most cynical atheist curious. I enjoyed the film mainly for the visuals and 3D, but found the story was a little lacking in that I wasn't as moved emotionally as I should have been.
