Life of Pi (2012)
A Beautiful and Heart Wrenching Movie
Life of Pi is quite simply an amazing movie. Obviously the production value and special effects, but also the acting and subtlety.
Suraj Sharma should have been nominated for Best Actor at the Oscars this year and his performance was supremely undervalued and underrated. You really believed his fear when he is out in the ocean and the emotion he displays throughout the different situations he must overcome throughout the film were paralleled by no other actor or actress this summer.
The script was beautifully crafted and there was never a dull moment. There was the perfect mix of wonder, intrigue and culture. The first quarter of the movie is interesting as Pi's cultural and religious background is explored and the rest of the movie keeps the watcher guessing with the magic that David Magee has so wonderfully weaved into his masterpiece.
The attention to detail was phenomenal. As more and more time progressed, Richard Parker's coat became paler and more washed out and Richard Parker himself was a spectacular feat. I just cannot give this film high enough praise.
The only thing that stopped this movie from getting ten stars was the ending and the fact that I had to argue with most people I knew about what actually happened.
If you have not seen this movie yet, do it now. Time well spent!
