Oklar. Since @LoyarBurok 's Wai gives such great praises about Life of Pi - I shall go watch. Like in the nxt hour.

Where “Pi” works its true magic is in its themes. The title character is a follower of multiple religions, and this ties in thematically with the point of his rather unbelievable story. All religions, perhaps excluding Buddhism (which Pi somehow left out of his belief system), rely heavily on faith. As does our acceptance of Pi’s story. His first story, that is. Because he later tells another story, one far more dark and brutal, and devoid of any of the former’s sense of beauty, hope or compassion. The latter story is told to investigators after he makes it back to civilization, and it sounds more “believable” because there are no fantastical elements in it. Just the ugly side of humanity. Which story we choose to accept depends on our own worldview. So if you go with the more magical-sounding story, despite the complete absence of proof or logic, then you are going on faith.
