LIfe of Pi Movie Review

Life of Pi

Grade: A

At the conclusion of this film, BW leaned over and said "I can't wait to read your review on this movie".  To which I replied, "I don't think I have the intellectual or spiritual capacity to really review this movie".

That comment it still true.

Life of Pi is a beautiful movie.  The film's story, pace and cinematography all make for a beautiful and stirring movie.  Of the film's I've seen this year, it should easily win an Oscar for Cinematography, but there is so much more to this story.  It leaves you sitting in your seat...thinking and wondering.  I like a movie that make me wonder and challenge my views of the world.  Likely you will have to find your own relationship with this film.  I finally resolved that it was a parable with a story inside.

You will find yourself gripped as Pi decipher's his way to surviving alone at sea with a fierce tiger.  Overcoming the elements, sharks, a whale, dehydration, hunger and ultimately finding a way to master the tiger so that they can both survive.

Well done and a deserving must see film for 2012.


  1. I really enjoyed this movie, too, Lindalou. That ending really got me. I agree it's a must see!

  2. I want to see it again just for the photography! It was truly stunning and amazing plus this movie really does give you a whole lot to ponder.

  3. Also on my list- my book club read the book this fall.
