Friday Movies:
Slumdog Millionaire


To be perfectly honest, I was spurred to see Slumdog Millionaire because of the recent massacre in Mumbai, where most of the film is set. But I lost all sense of investigative agenda almost immediately. Danny Boyle’s adaptation of Vikas Swarup’s Q & A (now for sale under the movie’s title) is a smashingly engaging film. The only thing that could have made it seem bigger would have been to see it at Radio City Music Hall in a holiday extravaganza.

    I went yesterday. I am very relieved I did not see it on a bigger screen. It was very powerful. I could have used a smaller format (the tv) with frequent breaks to take me away from all of the poverty and violence.
    That being said, it is an excellent film.
