Review: Slumdog Millionaire

Danny Boyle directs an unusual movie, and wins an Oscar along the way (and not for the expected Foreign movie category, but for the full-blown Motion Picture of the Year, along with 7 other Oscars).
Granted, it’s a wonderful exploratory film (getting to see how it is to grow up in Mumbai) with some great narrative, giving it that special feeling, but some story turns go so far out its element, it’s easy to predict how it will unfold. And even though direction is great (with an absolutely colorful and lively atmosphere), it’s still a grounded Hollywood movie (with all its feel-goodness and what not). It’s definitely a specialty (with no big stars attached), and still memorably enough, but mostly because last years movies didn’t provide any real competition.8-.
