[from Life of Pi; dir. Ang Lee, 2012]
Fact versus fiction; dream versus reality; exterior versus interior..... if the story is good, powerful, these distinctions fall short. The story goes rogue. Existing neither in sleep nor wakefulness, but alive with a momentum that builds strength from our inability to fully comprehend. The tale splices and stitches all the realms which compose human being and its only resolving instinct is to continue reincarnate. A beast not to be trained, honored or cursed. Will live, grow and die in the mysteries of its own path. Its binding foothold on reality relative to the insistence of its need to be told and should we choose to respect its power- observed through the reason of angels while heard as a whisper in our ears.
