How do I feel about the movie? This was what I posted on my Facebook this morning:
The thing I like about The Life of Pi is because it’s a story – we get absorbed into the story and don’t notice the passage of time (the movie is 2 hours long!). It’s like listening to a master story-teller weaving a tapestry of beauty. I may not agree with everything in the story but it didn’t prevent me from enjoying the story simply because it is a good story. Only 2 very annoying cinema-goers felt the need to check their FB repeatedly during the movie (usually it’s 5 times as many) – I already cursed these 2 with chronic dysmenorrhea.
I think it’s refreshing to watch an engaging movie which does not have sex, blood gore, machine guns, fast cars, sexy women wearing very little (although Tabu was really stunning!), emaciated effeminate vampires that glitter in the sun, and cheesy lines and music.
Go watch it and see if you agree with me.
