Slumdog millionaire

Couldn't help it, I had to write about this. Daniel tayona shared me this movie via usb since he knew i was into bollywood movies. This is the 2nd time I've watched this movie. It still hasn't lost it's charm. I haven't had this much fun watching a film since lagaan. There's sibling rivalry, many parallelisms to Philippine society, slums that don't ask to be pitied, underdogs winning, and that all consuming faith in "destiny". I was still laughing, still crying even the 2nd time around. This is just a really well made film. I hope danny boyle sweeps the oscars. I will watch it again for the 3rd time... But this time, I will make sure i get converts :)
