Life of PI

This 3D adaptation of a supposedly "unfilmable" book achieved the near impossible, it is an astonishing technical achievement that' is emotionally rewarding bring 3D movies to a new level of dimension. A young man who survives a disaster at sea and is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While cast away, his unexpected journey with Richard Parker (a fearsome Bengal tiger) taught him a lesson in life to continue learning after his survival. This phenomenal cinematography is  mesmerizing and brilliantly executed. The spectacle of Pi's journey that makes the most lasting impression would tell you a story that would make you believe in God and comes to the final plot twist that may also change what you thought you knew about the ancient art of storytelling. You have a choice to chose what you want to believe. Several reasons why Yann Martel's "Life of Pi" novel was considered unfilmable when it was published in 2001 as most of the story takes place on a lifeboat in the middle of the Pacific Ocean may not be at help or to excel Tom Hank's <Castaway>. The young Indian boy named Piscine Molitor Patel, "Pi" may not have enough human soul to talk to for a 200 days in the sea could be a challenge. The most challenge for any filmmaker is to work with animal when comes to filming and a full-grown 450-pound Bengal tiger needed to be trained and "co-act" with the Pi is indeed the challenge. For these, Ang Lee did it triumphantly with his very own sensibility. We shall awaits Lee to sweep aways a couple of more Oscar in 2013.
