My first rewatch since I saw it for the first time when it came out and Life of Pi continues to be absolutely wonderful. A true visual masterpiece.

Mostly what I wanted to remove from this second viewing was to pay more attention to details and see if my interpretation of the story could be different. It wasn't. I still have the same idea about the story. Is very interesting how some more complex films might cause different emotions and ideas on every person. This film might be seen from many different perspectives and that's what's the best of it.

Ang Lee totally deserved the oscar for Best Director because all of the things about this films were impeccably done.


Triumph of form over substance. Great pictures, effects, and music. Monologues little pompous. For the first time my favorite character in the film was a tiger. :)
