"Slumdog Millionaire"

Go see "Slumdog Millionaire on the big screen, so you can enjoy the SIZE of the soundtrack and the memorable compositions of COLOR.

Without having seen any of the other contenders, yet, I would bet right now that "Slumdog Millionaire" will win many awards, including the Oscar for Best Picture.

I was enthralled with the visuals and the soundtrack throughout, and oh what a PRIZE Frieda Pinto is!

"SM" has loads of intriguing chronological leaps and jumps which add to the suspense. And the craft of this film: above and beyond direction, cinematography and lighting -- the colors! I'll remember the colors most of all, along with the scenery and the gritty views of Mumbai -- even more than I'll remember the often torturous twists and turns of the main characters. This movie is being billed as 'a poor "slumdog" gets on "Who Wants to be a Millionaire?" to win the heart of a girl.' In the early ads, the movie sounds light and uplifting, but let's just say the road to that train station is rough, frought with real world peril.

A gorgeous film. I'm off to buy the soundtrack.
