Slumdog Millionaire

Dickens for the 21st Century (the editor is even one C. Dickens). A rich, melodramatic film of the kind that inspires social change. For all that Danny Boyle has been lauded, I would quibble with his overuse of that flickering, music video style, but it is a small quibble and if 'Slumdog Millionaire' (or should that be 'Mill-inaire') doesn't win the Oscar, Hollywood should drop through the toilet floor. It is written.
