“There’s always room for a story that can transport people to another place.”
― J.K. Rowling
For me, that time is Sundae!
Today, I saw “Life of Pi” (David Magee, 2012). I can’t say that there was a point during the film in which I was terribly bored.
As a fellow obligate carnivore, I could empathize with Richard Parker in his struggle not to eat his friend, Pi, whose very name evoked the image of a delicious meat pastry. I also felt the absence of a house cat in a film about animals made me feel excluded.
This is so cute!! I want a tiger friend I can love and butt heads with! We would have gotten along, me and the tiger.
I also thought the framing device of Pi telling his story was kind of expository, but I sneaked a good taste of my human’s butter fork during the screening, so I can’t complain.
Until next time!
