Slumdog Millionaire

You know, when I first heard of this movie I wasn't interested merely because of the "Who Wants to be a Millionaire" theme. But then I read a little more about it and decided that it was something I wanted to see. Last night, Chandra and I went and saw it in the little art theatre right down the street from my apartment.

WOW. It's the best movie I've seen in a long time. It was so well done, carefully thought out, beautifully sequenced and brilliantly acted. And as someone who can be a bit ADD through movies, this one kept my attention the whole time. Chandra and I were captivated the entire time. We laughed, we cried (well, I did. I'm not sure about her), and we left feeling really good. I also left feeling really lucky to live the life that I do and to have the things that I have, but not in a guilty way. I felt genuinely blessed.

Go see this movie. Pay the money. Support this fantastic film. It even won a few Golden Globes last night! And when it comes out on DVD - BUY IT! I know I am.
