Life of Pi

This is the One Minute Review of Ang Lee's "Life of Pi." A boy, a boat, a tiger, and a confused understanding of God. Does it make for good theology, a good story, both, or neither? Fr. Thomas McKenzie has an opinion, if not all the answers.

  1. Don't you think that the segment on the island with the merekats is intentionally far-fetched and incredible? I mean, carnivorous trees with human teeth in their fruit? The whole story is, I think, deliberately getting progressively more improbable in order to create ambiguity when the alternate story is told at the end. (The book has the additional scene with the blind man they meet in the ocean that outlandish.) So, yes, the it's unbelievable, but that's the point, isn't it?
