Reviews

“A miraculous achievement of storytelling and a landmark of visual mastery!”
– Roger Ebert

“Lee has filmed it with so much moment-by-moment physical detail and so bounteous a celebration of the natural world that Life of Pi becomes one of the great adventure films. You can’t fight the kind of overwhelming sensuous feast that is possible only in the cinema; you just let it sweep you away…”
– David Denby, The New Yorker

“Ang Lee’s best spectacle since Crouching Tiger! Succeeds in its most audacious moments.”
– Indiewire

“The unfussy deep-focus compositions draw you into the world of the story, inviting you to explore different fields of playing space within the frame.”
– Chicago Reader

“DIZZYING, OVERWHELMING VERVE.”
– A.V. Club
