Movie Review: Life of Pi
From Amazon: "After a cataclysmic shipwreck, an Indian boy named Pi finds himself stranded on a lifeboat with a ferocious Bengal tiger. Together, they face nature's majestic grandeur and fury on an epic journey of discovery."
This movie was every bit as beautiful, visually and in narrative, as the previews made it out to be. Even beyond that. This is now, without a doubt, one of my favorite movies.
I have not read the book, and in all honesty I may not now that I've seen the movie and know how it ends. However, it must be an amazing story to read, judging by how beautiful and detailed the movie is. It was a much deeper and much more serious story than I expected based on seeing the trailers, and the most fanciful story on a generally religious subject I've ever seen. It's culturally, philosophically, and religiously interesting, and I really want to see it again.
