Life of Pi ★★★½

Second viewing (this time not in 3D in the theater) and I still don't know what I think about it. Walks the edge of ridiculousness in nearly every way, from its ludicrous plotting (which is itself what the story is about) to its almost garish coloring and no-eye-view framing (which are what Lee seems most interested in adding). (I'm also midway through a reading of the book, which I have to teach this semester against my inclinations.)
