One of my favorite movies!

I've seen many movies in my lifetime, but this one's one of my two all time favorite movies. Everything about this movie is a winner from start to finish. You really get involved with Jamal Malik's struggle from the depths of poverty (shown in one of its purest forms) to a life of love and riches. The cinematography is outstanding, showing many sights of India's metropolitan and historic landscapes making it a country I wound't mind seeing at one point in my life. The narrative really pulls you in, a way not unlike how English author Charles Dickens managed in his works. You really feel for the three main characters as their stories are fleshed out and bring a lot of emotion, you wonder how they are going to get out of each scenario. I won't reveal the ending, but I will say that this movie will keep you coming back again and again for years to come. To top it all off, I like that they included a nice song at the end that will stick with you as well. Definitely the top movie of 2008 and one of the greatest movies of all time!

Slumdog Millionaire

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It was very interesting. It starts with Jamal being tortured. The people torturing him are asking him how he knows all the answers for a game show on TV that he was participating in. The film goes along with each question on the game show. The question is asked then it goes to a flashback of Jamal's childhood. Through Jamal's crazy young life of stealing and living on the move with his brother, Salim, he gets all the answers to the questions. nobody has ever won before so the show host and the cops think that he is a cheat. This film I feel shows India well in two different stages. One is from when Jamal and his brother were kids. The other point of view is when Jamal is grown up and on the show.

"When somebody asks me a question I tell them the answer."

A lot of buzz when this film came out, both from movie goers and the industry itself. Since I'm usually well behind the curve on pictures like this, my reaction today with almost a decade gone by is that I don't see what the fuss was all about. It may have been a good old fashioned rags to riches story, but it was a contrived rags to riches story. One expects the kind of coincidence needed to carry a story forward in films of the Forties, Fifties or Sixties, but this was 2008, and seemed to require some lazy writing to pull off. To wit, each and every question that Jamal Malik (Dev Patel) was presented, there was some association with it during his past life. I won't deny that there may be occasional times when some element of cosmic serendipity enters one's life but the repetition that took place here defied the laws of probability. And the idea that Jamal would actually be hauled off and tortured by authorities because they thought he cheated, well I don't know, that seemed brutally excessive, don't you think? I think the game show moderator, if he felt that his popularity was being challenged by the chai wallah whiz kid, could have fixed the show's questions with ones that no one could have possibly answered. Heck, I got half of them myself with a lucky guess or two, same as Jamal. Well, you just never know. Best Picture with four additional Oscar Wins? Good deal if you can pull it off, but I just don't see it.
