On "Life of Pi"


From The Dispatch:
It's telling, I think, that the strongest moments in "Life of Pi" all come from the modern-day setting, where an older Pi is relating the story to an author who wants to write a book about it. The great Irrfan Khan is fantastic as the older Pi, and he gives the story an emotional anchor that no amount of computer-generated beauty ever could. It is a film filled with indelible images (the floating island of meerkats is unforgettable), but what sticks with us the most are the small moments, and Khan's quietly revelatory performance that serves as a reminder that he is one of the most talented actors working in film today.
