Slumdog MIllionaire

Yeah, the first best movie I watched in 2009!

I prefer because it's actually a 'documentary' instead of 'love story'..

The documentary of Indian lifestyle, or to be more specific, there are groups of people who live hard & struggling to survive, not only India! It's every corner around the world.. that we rarely aware of.

The film has brought this 'slumdog scenes' up cautiously, with great visual & cinematography impact. Plus the soundtrack is really awesome! that spark out the entire film.

The opening chase scene is one of my favorite!

Well, honestly I like the 1st half more than the 2nd half- I find the part after they grew up & how difficult they got together- the 'love story' part is over 'Hollywood'.. but Definitely exclude the Bollywood group dance at the last scene! Love it~

There are 3 questions from this film.. (what I think)
  1. Many answer are actually hidden in our daily life, but if there's no 'question', something would never be the 'answer'... Most of the time things don't go exactly ABCD 4 choices. Yes, instance culture is.
  2. Is capitalism the savior of slumdog? Who don't want to be millionaire? No, it's not capitalism & it never be. Not communism either.
  3. Eco crisis? Yea, people worry about losing their job, being laid off, house gone etc.. but look at those who stay beside the junk yard.. Yes, we always work hard in order to survive, but stop complaining when you loss something that you thought you're deserved for it.

No idea of what I'm talking about? Go watch it! A film that you must watch this year!

& I don't know why the trailer editted with The Ting Tings, one of the album that I listening lately. It's good as well~
