Life of Pi
I've been a harsh critic of lackluster digital effects for years but in the past few years, I've become more and more of a believer. That shipwreck was awesome! That tiger looked real! Those meerkats were super cool! Irrfan Khan is always awesome, Ang Lee knows how to direct a great action scene, and a ferocious tiger on a raft in the middle of an ocean means drama.
Parts of this movie reminded me of amazing technicolor adventures from the 50's or Errol Flynn crazy pirate movies of the 30's or flying carpet movies from the 40's. Good stuff.
Directed by Ang Lee
