7. 'Life of Pi'
When a maestro experiments with 3D, it makes a difference. Witness the miracles performed by director Ang Lee in his moving take on Yann Martel's 2001 bestseller about an Indian boy (fearless newcomer Suraj Sharma) trapped for 227 days at sea in a lifeboat with a starving Bengal tiger. The beast is all digital. The film's grit and grace are all genuine.
