I saw Life of Pi earlier tonight at the Museum of the Moving Image. Even though I never got around to reading the Yann Martel novel, this Ang Lee-directed film is, quite honestly, amazing. The acting and screenwriting are top-notch; the cinematography and music are gorgeous; the 3D is done well and usually pretty effective.
Unfortunately I could not stick around after the film for the Q&A with screenwriter David Magee. Still, I loved the film and highly recommend it. Laughter, tears, life-affirming emotion – the magnificent Life of Pi has it all. I expect (and hope for) lots of highly-deserved Oscar nominations.
