DVD review: Life of Pi

Yann Martel's Booker-winner was once widely classed as "unfilmable", but with the help of some astonishing digital imagery, Ang Lee has visualised its 16-year-old hero's epic battle to share a lifeboat with a fully grown, permanently hungry Bengal tiger – and he took home a Best Director Oscar from this year's ceremony for his troubles.

I'm not sure that it's as profound as the overbearing spirituality might suggest, but it's certainly gorgeous to look at.
