Trailer for Life of Pi Confirms that Life of Pi is Unfilmable

I know, I’m as shocked as you are. Who would’ve known that a movie based on a book about a boy who floats around in a life raft with animals whose interactions metaphorically represent social, religious, economic and national discord could possibly be difficult to make?

Beyond merely looking hokey, Pi seems to be following the Polar Express method of adaptation, by which I mean adding a ton of action to make a simple plot moderately more palatable to a wider audience and, by doing so, forcing the final product to depart from the emotional impact of the original story.

Coming to theaters November 21st, 2012. Enjoy!
