We went to see Slumdog Millionaire last night. I thought it was going to be good because of all the awards it has already won, but was a bit dubious about it all because sometimes films win random awards from the 'pros' when the normal people can't understand the decisions ie, There Will Be Blood won loads of awards and it was the biggest pile of crud i have EVER seen!!!!!!!!!
But i can honestly say that Slumdog Millionaire deserves every award it has won and will win!!!! It is the most amazingly beautiful film i have ever seen. The story is brilliant, completely original and not what i expected. The filming is so perfect - colours, details, grainy, intense, fast, graphic. The actors are so talented (can't believe how good Skins fella is!). The music is brilliant (soooo downloading some). And the child actors are the most beautiful children! Even the credits are magic.
This is definately one of my favourite films! It's tragic, but happy. There's no sleeze, nudeness, unneccessary violence or swearing. It's thought provoking but not too intense. It's just beautiful.
It was twenty (minus fifteen) years ago today…
