"The Life of Pi" Thread

Just saw it and HATED IT. Ang Lee sells out to 3D and CGI, and CGI wins - essentially this is a kind of visual melodrama, with FX shot after FX shot at the expense of story and character. I was ready to walk out by the time the glowing whale breached. The mise-en-scene itself is incredibly unpleasant, with many shots of animals suffering and endless back-and-forth (probably 30 minutes) between Pi and the tiger. The payoff of the film is very weak and at the end you were just happy you could close your eyes for a few minutes and get some rest. Rent "Castaway" instead.
