Life of Pi Picture, Director, Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography, Original Score, Original Song, Production Design, Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Visual EffectsWho knew that the story of a boy lost at sea could be so exhilarating? Sure, it helps that the main character is stranded along with a bloodthirsty tiger named Richard Parker, but really it’s Ang Lee’s direction of the stunning Life of Pi that makes the film such a spectacle.
