Hipster Review: Life of Pi bombards you with beautiful words, breathtaking sounds and images so spiritually profound you may see God himself/herself…Ang Lee’s vision of Yann Martel’s novel is one of the most pleasurable films of 2012 and its characters Pi and Richard Parker could be the most spectacularly odd duo since E.T. Watched March 1st, 2013.
“I suppose in the end, the whole of life becomes an act of letting go, but what always hurts the most is not taking a moment to say goodbye.” Pi
- Pi’s ark which included an orangutan, zebra, rat and a tiger
- All of the oceans lovely creatures – flying fish, dolphins, jellyfish, sharks and whales
- How Piscine Militor Patel became Pi
- The island of trees, Meerkats and glowing teeth
- The pissing match between Pi and Richard Parker
Biggest Surprise: How extraordinary the story was, and the ending just made it so much better for me.
Biggest Let Down: The boat was unusually clean considering it’s occupant was a tiger who ate a zebra and a thousand fish.
Does the guy find God in the end? Perhaps, with a little creativity and openness.
Worth a Blu-ray purchase? It’s visually stunning, this film is the very reason why Blu-ray was invented.
