Mesmo com todo esse furor em volta de 'Quem Quer Ser Um Milionário?', eu não estava botando muita fé nele. Talvez seja pelo pôster do longa que, convenhamos, não é tão atraente. Na verdade, estava mais a fim de ver 'Watchmen'. E tive uma grata surpresa. 'Quem Quer Ser Um Milionário?' é um filme inesquecível, apaixonante.

Com tudo muito bem calculado, o filme de Danny Boyle... read more

One of the best films of the year

“Warning: SpoilersDanny Boyle has been a favorite of mine since I saw Shallow Grave, since then he's gone on to make three masterpieces(Trainspotting,28 Days Later and Millions), a near perfect film(Sunshine) a guilty pleasure(The Beach) and a total miss(A Life Less Ordinary). Slumdog Millionaire comes out of nowhere and it could very well be his best film and one of the best films of the decade. Visually like Boyles previous work it's stunning, Apocalypse Now and City of God come to mind and there are dutch angles galore. The raw style mixed with the amazing locations make this film one of the most cinematic experiences you'll ever see. The Sound is perfect, I haven't heard audio like this in a while. This film needs a Sound Oscar nomination, it sounds that good. I went into seeing this kn” read more

"Throughout the entirety of cinematic history, there is a certain type of phenomena that occurs only every once in a blue moon, in which a small film becomes an unexpected enormous hit. Easy Rider, Rocky, Fast Times At Ridgemont High, and My Big Fat Greek Wedding are all examples of movies with samll budgets that surpriseingly made it big in different decades. And in 2008, such an event occurred in the form of a film fittingly entitled Slumdog Millionaire. Directed by Danny Boyle, it is a western"

" Notes: When it won the Best Picture Academy Award, I became quite intrigued by this movie. Apparently, at first, nobody was interested by this project and there was even some rumors that it might end up being released directly on DVD. Eventually, it managed to get released and the critical and public response was really enthusiast and, coming from nowhere, it was even heralded at the Oscars. Personally, even though I'm a huge cynical, I actually really loved this movie. In my opinion, it is on"
