Clouds in the water and other images from “Life of Pi”


Only two months or so after the movie’s release I finally made it to the cinema for the “Life of Pi,” and I’m so glad I did.  Visually, it was absolutely breath-taking, the way the sky and water change with each scene so that every sequence adds more depth is so poetic.  It is a movie I’ll revisit whenever I feel in need of inspiration.

Here are just a few of the images that have stayed with me:


There is a quite poignant moment where Pi tries to communicate with Richard Parker, and wonders what the tiger sees in the water. life-of-pi3

I love this line from a review in the Guardian, it really sums up how Ang Lee captures the danger and the beauty of Richard Parker, the Bengal tiger.

They [Pi and Richard Parker] are soon pacing around one other with the same mixture of wariness and hungriness last seen on the faces of Jake Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger in Lee’s 2005 Brokeback Mountain.
