Danny Boyle continues to reinvent himself. Slumdog Millionaire is an example of pure, old-school filmmaking, transposed into impoverished India. The director tells a classic story of love, revenge, and redemption, using mostly unknown actors and settings. The result is an emotionally-charged and, ultimately, triumphant and brilliantly staged film, easily the best film of 2008 and fully deserving of its Best Picture Oscar.
