Life of Pi


Pi is a young Indian boy finding his way in the world, and this adventure film is his almost too hard to believe shipwreck story.

During the first third to half of the film I had dismissed it as a visual achievement but grossly lacking in the casting and story.  (i.e. an Ang Lee film.  Not a fan, with the exception of 'The Ice Storm'.)  But once it finally gets to the heart of the story, it improves significantly and builds to a memorable conclusion.  So, while I can't recommend this for your list of must see films (despite what some other critics are saying), if you do find yourself watching it, stick with it.

Grade: B
