Even as a big Danny Boyle fan and someone who gave this five stars once upon a time, I can admit that Slumdog Millionaireisn’t aging well. Still, its total immersion in the textures and vibrancy of India – with all the beauty and horrors intact/heightened/manipulated – make it aesthetically electric. The music, visuals and sense of movement still get my heart racing. It’s also refreshing to not have to watch a bunch of white dudes dominate the screen. It might not be Satyajit Ray, but it is unmistakably cinema.
