Life of Pi, the anti-Disney movie...

If you watched Disney’s version of The Jungle Book and thought, “that kid would have been eaten by the end of the first song” then Life of Pi is for you. 

There are no jovial bears with highly developed choreographic skills breaking into song and although a Bengal tiger is a source of peril in both, Richard Parker is just trying to stay alive. He is no Shere Khan, malevolently hunting an orphaned child; when Richard Parker roars and lashes out, it is terrifying but he is only acting according to his nature.
