I finally caught up with "Slumdog Millionaire" this week and in spite of all the critical praise being heaped on the film I was unprepared for the incredible originality, vitality, and beauty of the movie.
This is what the experience of going to the movies should be - a gripping story opening up new worlds, great acting, and inspired direction and cinematography. Even the way the (very few) subtitles are handled is fresh.
This trailer is about the only uninspired thing connected to the movie, but there's so much they didn't want to give away that I'll excuse it by saying it's not like one of those trailers like "Bride Wars" where after you've seen it there's no need to see the film.
Happy weekend viewing!
