i am usually too cheap to go to movies. also, i think they are uncomfortable. the temperature is never right and the seats are never as good as my sofa for watching a movie. but some friends from work were going to see slumdog millionaire saturday and i had heard so many things about it, i decided to join.
it was the right decision.
it is super intense, real, and moving. the story telling is fabulous, the cinematography is mind-blowing and the acting (even from the kids) is fantastic. it is like "a fine balance" and the "god of small things" there is bollywood dancing.
this is what the nyt has to say about it...
here is the trailer.
