Trailer for Slumdog Millionaire

Movie Preview: Slumdog Millionaire


Slumdog Millionaire, directed by the same guy responsible for Trainspotting and 28 Days Later, Danny Boyle, is receiving rave reviews (to put it mildly) that include:

  • This nice statement from the Wall Street Journal: "There's never been anything like this densely detailed phantasmagoria — groundbreaking in substance, damned near earth-shaking in style."
  • And this one from Time: "A buoyant hymn to life, and a movie to celebrate."
  • And this one from Variety: "As drama and as a look at a country increasingly entering the world spotlight, Slumdog Millionaire is a vital piece of work by an outsider who's clearly connected with the place."

Impressive, right? The film has been making the festival rounds for some time now and slowly generating a lot of buzz — even that of the Oscar variety. I'm totally intrigued by this story of an "18-year-old orphan from the slums of Mumbai, who is about to experience the biggest day of his life. With the whole nation watching, he is just one question away from winning a staggering 20 million rupees on India's Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?. But when the show breaks for the night, police arrest him on suspicion of cheating; how could a street kid know so much?"

The movie has a limited opening Nov. 12. To check out the trailer, just

I saw a screening last weekend. It was terrific. Truly a Cinderella-type story with reality pushed it. There might be some difficult scenes to see at the beginning of it but it's really great. I loved how the subtitles were done; they were more like comic-strip boxes than normal subtitles.The music is amazing, the direction was fantastic, and the cast is great. It is rated "R" but it was mostly for tone. I hope that everyone gets to watch this intriguing movie. The movie goes back and forth from the interrogation at the police station to Jamal's journey from his children to the present, to show how he knew the answers of the gameshow. It was very well crafted.
