Slumdog Millionaire is gritty, stylish, disquieting, and incredibly well made. I want to see it a second time to better understand how it was shot. Apparently the whole movie was shot with handheld digital, which makes a ton of sense in retrospect but I actually never thought about the cinematography per se, except to be be amazed.
I now both want to visit Mumbai more than ever and also never ever go to India, ever.
It's got all of the heart that Danny Boyle's long ago Trainspotting lacked, and even more of the style.
I'd even say it's better than 28 Days Later (okay, 28 Days wasn't awesome, but it wasn't bad either).
