Life of Pi (2012)

A boy finds himself adrift in the Pacific Ocean with a zebra, an orang utan, a spotted hyena, and a Bengal tiger. Hilarity does not ensue.

This is an adaptation of Yann Martell's inspirational novel, The Life of Pi. You'll either love the film or hate it to bits depending on how you take to Martell's Orientalist dime store spirituality, and whether it inspires you to take an oppositional reading of the film.

Watch for: Achingly beautiful CGI.
