NYFF: Life of Pi is an instant Oscar contender…

There are a lot of positive and admirable things about Ang Lee’s latest Life of Pi.  Cinematographer Claudio Miranda captures the most uproarious and glorious shots captured this year thus far.  The 3D effects are some of the best ever seen and feels absolutely necessary in a film so heavy handed with religious tones.  What Mychael Danna achieves in Lee’s film has just placed him in the forefront of great film composers working today.  He continues to impress with his musical range, envelopes the film’s message and thematic narrative in somber and beautiful melodic notes.   On Visual Effects alone, Life of Pi will likely land a nomination for Best Picture.  What Lee invents with the ocean and the integration of the tiger and the other animals is spectacular.  He allows the mood of the film and the imagery to marry each other in a ceremonial experience that stands next to Sci-Fi epics like Avatar (2009) and Hugo (2011).
