Slumdog Millionaire.

So it was emotionally manipulative and the last act was pretty schmaltzy (“It was like a movie directed by Denzel Washington,” said a friend), but it worked. And worked pretty well, even though by all rights it shouldn’t have.

And for a shameless crowd-pleaser, it went to some pretty dark places.

Also? Freida Pinto.

    The reviewer on All Things Considered like it. Unfortunately, I’m not sure it will make it to a theater near me.

    Yet another movie I will be forced to bootleg. Ah well, can’t be helped.

    I really want to see this. But like Scott I highly doubt it’ll make it to my local theater. Sigh.

    aw man, again just being honest
    The movie is being highly and heavily promoted and it’s turning me off for some reason.
