Life of Pi. Awesome special effects and photography, almost worth watching simply for the spectacle. (Reminds me of The Fall in that way). I’d like it sooooooooooooooooooooooooo much more overall without the (blunt, preachy) narrative wrapper. I DNFed on the book several years ago. Not sure how it compares.
Mesrine: L’instinct de mort. I need to see more movies with Vincent Cassel. The guy is awesome. This one is the first of a two-parter about a real French gangster/bank robber and it’s great. No CGI silliness. No melodrama silliness. Just a magnetic, unhinged sort of guy going about his dirty business. Good stuff. Looking forward to the second part when it arrives.
