The Only Way You Won’t Like ‘Slumdog Millionaire’ is if You Have No Soul

November 25, 2008

I saw Slumdog Millionaire last night.

  1. How? One of the many benefits of living in Los Angeles, CA is the fact that people really do care about cinema here and despite the traffic it takes to get to it, you can see limited release motion pictures in top notch facilities.
  2. Why? Slumdog has been seriously hyped for its emotional core and powerhouse directing job by Danny Boyle.
  3. Who? Not even a Michael Cera sighting at the theater could take my mind away from the performances of Slumdog‘s cast including Dev Patel as Jamal and Freida Pinto as Latika.
  4. What? This has been the weirdest post openings I’ve ever written, I thought it would work better. So now, on to the full review… here.
