MINI BLOG: Slumdog Millionaire

Slumdog Millionaire (2008)
Ok, I’m impressed. It’s so painfully obvious that “Slumdog” was the brainchild of nothing more than one of the gimmicks of gameshow “So You Want To Be A Millionaire” (I guessed the ending with about half an hour left in the film). But, like a great Greek epic, even though the ending is never in doubt, it’s all about the journey that makes the story worthwhile. “Slumdog” prevents a fascinating look at the culture of India’s lowest class (especially the children of this environment) and how they must hustle and struggle to survive almost every moment of their lives. This movie also brings a modern polish to movie-making with web-inspired sub-titles and almost reality TV quality filming. Do I believe this was Best Picture worthy? Maybe not, but definitely worth a view. [4/5] Really Liked It
