Think of Life of Pi as an inverted "fairy-story" which makes the Incarnated Myth into a mere myth.
Full of pathos, but confused and confusing at best.
Can a story take the place of the harsh, unbearable realities of life?
Reality is so terrible we construct stories around it to survive.
The questions the film raises are not concerned with absolute truth, but with preferences about truth. It fits our age perfectly.
All followers of Jesus should see this movie. It asks the right questions.
Life of Pi is a sensual immersion in to questions about the nature of reality.
If anything, Life of Pi is an argument for the existence of God based on the experience of beauty
There is a basic flaw in "spiritual but not religious" aspect of Pi's faith.

Lots of things could have gone wrong with adapting the hit book into a movie, but it works.
'Life of Pi' reminds Sister Rose of another metaphorical movie called 'Big Fish.' Both are journeys of faith.
