Default Life Of Pi (2012)

"Life Of Pi"......Oh where to begin here? First off the spiritual themes are simple and deep and raise more questions about faith and belief than answer anything. It's a wonderful story about storytelling and how telling our stories can get us through the most horrible life experiences and to help deal with the aftermath of them. There are some very moving scenes, and they brought me to tears. The movie is beautifully shot and I was also impressed with the main 2 performances. Suraj Sharma as teen "Pi" is charming, funny, and pretty solid, while Irrfan Khan as the older "Pi" was fantastically genuine and warm. Adil Hussain as Pi's "father" was also a joy to watch and had a pivotal supporting role. The characters are so rich and full of life and the movie is very character driven. The special effects are top notch. The animators did a wonderful and accurate job of bringing "Richard Parker" to life and making him the active and vital character that is so incredibly essential to the success of this story. Terrific cinematography and art direction, solid music score, and fantastic direction by Ang Lee also highlight the movie. Nominated for 11 Academy Awards including Best Picture!!

9/10

Here are some thoughts after a few days of thinking about it.

First of all, it was nothing like I had expected it to be. I was expecting a much more melodramatic survival movie. My girlfriend and myself were kind of confused on why he wasn't on a boat after 30 minutes of the movie. Not that we were bored, but it was definitely going in a direction we weren't expecting. Of course, everything from the beginning comes full circle and is used to reinforce the ideas about spiritualism that Ang Lee was getting across.

Another thing, this movie is drop dead gorgeous. I didn't get to see it in 3d, but that didn't really take away from the amazing visuals. Having read some reviews that compared it to "Avatar" I was expecting a more shallow movie that relied heavily on visuals, but it was kind of a mix of awesome effects and a heavy hitting story. I was especially touched by the relationship Pi develops with Richard Parker, I was rooting for them the whole time. The last 15 minutes or so of this movie knocked me on my ass, and it made me think of the entire movie in a completely different way. Very emotional and thought-provoking.

All performances were outstanding, and I was surprised with how much depth the movie had. Loved it. I give it a 10/10 and it stands as my 3rd favorite movie nominated for the Best Picture award this year (after Django Unchained and Silver Lining's Playbook).
