SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE (Danny Boyle, 2008)

I wasn’t a complete fan when I initially saw this movie a few years back. Most of the scenes felt contrived, all in the spirit of being the ultimate feel-good movie of the year.

Surprisingly enough, it held up pretty well in repeat viewings and there were so many more things to love this time around. I began to appreciate all the metaphors, the general atmosphere, the frenetic jump-cut editing, and the eternal belief of happily-ever-afters.

The movie was faulty to an extent but in the end, it was clear that you should never ever lose faith on an underdog.

Rating: 5/5
