I'm glad that Ang Lee directed this BEAUTIFUL movie
Its hard to believe that Hollywood wanted M. Night Shyamalan to make the movie before handing it over to Ang lee.
M. Night Shyamalan says,"Though Lee did a wonderful job, I think my film would have been different from his version. Different perspectives, I guess. When I was approached to do the film, I wanted more time. The production house wanted me to do it right away, but I’m sure they had their reasons. It took them six years to find another director.
And for James Cameron, Known for "Aliens, Terminator, Titanic and Avatar, says, "Life of Pi breaks the paradigm that 3-D has to be some big, action fantasy spectacle, superhero movie [....] The movie is visually amazing, inventive, and it works on you in ways you’re not really aware of. It takes you on a journey, and unless you’ve read the book – which I hadn’t – you have no idea where that journey is going. It does what good 3-D is supposed to do, which is, it allows you to forget you’re watching a 3-D movie."
