Somewhat like a piece of a hologram containing the whole, the entirety of the movie Pi seemed to me to be encapsulated in the movie’s last few seconds, when one character exits, stage left, and then the color washes out of the background.

(I wanted to add something tongue in cheek, like “best movie starring a tiger in a small boat since African Queen,” but to tell you the truth I quite enjoyed the movie, despite it feeling a little M. Night Shyamalan-y.)

    It wasn't half-bad. They fumbled the spiritual message at the end--I'm not sure the filmmakers really knew what statement they wanted to make, they just kind of threw up some paradoxical-sounding stuff that seemed deep. But that tiger was pretty entertaining.

    It was sort of like Cast Away with a tiger instead of a volleyball, which automatically makes it more interesting.

    that movie was awesome.  love that early aronofsky.  e.g., requiem for a dream -- which is awesome but SUPREMELY heartwrenching
