Critic’s Review: Joe Morgenstern for the Wall Street Journal
Hunger, says the desperate hero in “Life of Pi,” “can change everything you think you knew about yourself.” So too can the ineffably beautiful images of Ang Lee’s film change what you think you knew about the appeal of monodramas (although the hero isn’t really alone in the unfolding tale); about water (not what it is or what it can do but how it can look) and about the relatively new, fast-evolving field of computer-generated imagery. Mr. Lee’s film is stronger as a visual experience—especially in 3-D—than an emotional one, but it has a final plot twist that may also change what you thought you knew about the ancient art of storytelling.
