Life of Pi

I was a big fan of the book Life of Pi, so I was very skeptical when I heard they were making a movie of it. The story of a boy and a non-speaking tiger adrift on a lifeboat seemed too interior monologue/narration dependent to make a decent feature. And yet, in the hands of Ang Lee (Brokeback Mountain; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), it is pretty magical, and I think the visuals alone are the reason to see this film. I didn’t see the 3D version, but if you can, I think that would be the better choice, because this is the kind of movie that deserves the extra dimension.
