Yann Martel's 2001 bestseller concerns an Indian boy trapped for 227 days at sea in a lifeboat with a starving Bengal tiger. Director Ang Lee takes on the daunting task of filming the unfilmable and his use of 3D to tell the story is electrifying. Lee uses 3D with the delicacy and lyricism of a poet. Check out the scene with the flying fish. You don't just watch this movie – thanks to 3D you live it.
