Here's Your First Look At Ang Lee's Adaptation of 'Life of Pi'
via Badass Digest:
The first picture from Ang Lee's adaptation of Yann Martel's Life of Pi is out, and it's... something.
It definitely looks like the film will sport a unique visual style, and I will always and forever give Ang Lee the benefit of the doubt, but something about this is throwing me. I think it's the perspective. Is the tiger really that much bigger than Pi? Why does Pi look like a tiny yet full-grown human? It's the angle, right? It has to be the angle.
I read this book back in 2003 when it came out, and I remember liking aspects of it, but I also don't remember enough to disagree with Badass Digest editor Devin Faraci's assertion that it struck him as "facile feel-good bullshit."
Has anyone read this more recently and want to weigh in?
And what do you think of that photo?
The film is scheduled to hit theaters on Dec. 21, which is my 30th birthday, and also the date of the Mayan apocalypse.
