Life Of Pi

28 Nov

I saw Life Of Pi while I was back in Colorado. I had been waiting to see it since I first saw the preview over a month ago. So, did I like it? Yes. Life Of Pi was an amazing cinematic journey that took the audience to places they couldn’t dream of.  This movie was visually stunning and I recommend it  not only because of the beauty in the way it was filmed and presented, but for the divine story of the main character, Pi. This young man (of many faiths) endures a trial of survival alongside his animal companions, learning many things about God and faith along the way. I’m not going to write about the ending of the film, but I will comment on its importance. This movie has been criticized by some (my parents and Jeff included) for its ending. Some say it belies the bulk of the narrative and ruins the events that preceded it. In my opinion, the ending of the movie played out like one of those genius moments in movies where everything comes together and makes sense in a sweeping sense of closure. When you see the movie, you’ll understand why, but it’s important to note that this isn’t a film that amounts to anything definitive. It leaves its viewers responsible for deciding what they want to believe, how much of the movie they perceive to be about faith.

For me, Life of Pi is a thought-provoking meditation on life that validates the importance of faith (not necessarily religion) and bases its success on its ability to tell a captivating story. Go see it. You’ll be glad you did.

*I also fell in love with the soundtrack to this movie. The music is equally as stunning and accompanies the cinematography beautifully. Take a listen.
