Life of Pi
Ang Lee’s film about a man who survives a shipwreck rightly won the esteemed director an Oscar. The film’s visual effects and twist at the end combined to make one of 2012’s best movies.
The Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl directed this terrific documentary about the L.A. studio where a number of classic albums were recorded (Fleetwood Mac’s Rumors and Nirvana’s Nevermind, for starters).
The veteran speed metal band covers classics by Rush, Boston, Journey and Cheap Trick and really lights them up.
