Movie Review - Slumdog Millionaire


I was fortunate enough to be able to see this on Friday as part of the AFI fest tribute to Danny Boyle, and I have to say that it is truly an incredible movie.

Though it's definitely not perfect, the passion and energy that Boyle infuses into every scene makes this one of my favorite movies I've seen in the last 10 years.

Yes, it's not all hype. It's that good.

The soundtrack is amazing, Dev Patel is solid, and it is one of the most original, ambitious, and beautiful stories I have ever seen.

4.5/5
