I've got far too much on my mind THUS this blog. Stop by to read my rants, raves and stories. Its called the Kitchen Sink - you know, all this and the kitchen sink. So everything and everyone is fair game. I am Tony Baksa and my main areas of interest and concern are music, movies, theater, human rights, pop culture and lots more - well, the kitchen sink.

Life Of Pi
Ang Lee's new movie, Life Of Pi is astonishing! Brilliant and moving, Life Of Pi is abundant with originality. Its also abundant with excitement and adventure. See it in 3D to experience its full worth. No longer does 3D have to be a cheap gimmick of objects flying in your face. 3D as art is what director Ang Lee has in mind AND he achieves high art. Don't let that scare you off. It is not artsy but artful and above all else enormously involving and entertaining. I will not only see it again but am most eager to read the book it is based on. Life Of Pi is a beautiful film - visually, to be sure but spiritually as well. To accomplish high adventure and soaring spirituality in a story about a boy literally lost at sea is monumental. Add a ferocious tiger, an island of meerkats , a sinking passenger ship, a zebra, monkey, mean cook and several nail biting storms in the middle of the Pacific Ocean and you have the ingredients of a surprising story of faith and survival.
