I was thrilled that Slumdog Millionaire won as many Oscars as it did. And my wife and I both like that movie.
However, my wife doesn’t LOVE that movie. I do.
I thought the framing device was brilliant. I thought it was a great story, filmed beautifully, with great acting. Dev Patel was tremendous, and as the Machiavellian host of Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?, Anil Kapoor was even better.
But there’s one thing we can agree on. When it comes to Danny Boyle films, Slumdog was good. Trainspotting was better.
