Slumdog Millionaire back to product details

An excellent movie that I could not watch.

Great acting, cinematography, pacing, etc. A wonderfully made film.

However, I watch programs that leave me feeling happier. I'm sensitive, and identify with the characters of the movie. Watching two hours of degrading, gratuitous, and incomprehensible violence is not my idea of a good time. In fact, I expect to have nightmares for days to come.
You have been warned.

Must see, plain and simple.

Is this movie perfect? Absolutely not. It is however, a fantastic film. Its scale is epic without ever dragging, in fact it is probably one of the best paced movies I've ever seen. With perhaps one exception, Madhur Mittal as the older Salim, the acting is superb, Freida Pinto shines, Dev Patel relentlessly delivers his dialog in a realistic manner, and Irrfran Khan is, as usual, amazing. Combine these superior performances with a great script, albeit perhaps a bit predictable, but very well written, beautiful cinematography, and an extremely adept combination of Hollywood and Bollywood styles of film-making, and I would stake my cinephile status on this suggestion any day of the week. Trust me, watch this movie.
