Slumdog Millionaire Review

| |

Given that Crash somehow pulled off an Oscar win in 2004, the fact that Slumdog won didn't really surprise me. It's a mainstream hit, infused with love and a new flavor of multiculturalism that isn't normally seen in American cinema. More importantly, it's the direction of Danny Boyle that gets the huge kudos here. As soon as the movie starts, the audience is instantly sucked into Danny's world, taking in all the romantic, violent, and fantastic exerpts of life the film has to show. What does slow it down are some of the inappropriate comedic elements littered here and there, but it's negligible given the overall appeal; Slumdog Millionaire is an extraordinary adventure that doesn't stop to ask for directions - it's a film about India, a friendship that transcends time and doubt, and hanging on a glimmer of hope during the worst of times. 8.6/10.
