Movie review: Life of Pi

Life of PiGrade: A

*Life of Pi* isn’t just an outstanding movie; it’s an outstanding story. Something we see far too infrequently these days in movies. It’s directed by Ang Lee so if you couldn’t tell from the previews it is visually gorgeous. For that reason alone I’d suggest seeing it in a nice big theater.

If you’ve seen the previews then you have a pretty good impression of what the movie is about. But the story is much richer than the previews let on. It would be like reading the jacket synopsis and chapter titles for a great book and thinking you know what the book is about.

I’m not going to get into any of the deeper threads of the movie. That’s what seeing the movie is for. But I’ll tell you that you might have some things to think about when the movie is over. I know I did.
