slum dogging

saw slumdog millionnaire last night and quite liked it. if you haven't seen it yet, just know he dies in the end.

seriously, this video shows the closing credit sequence starting with the ending of the movie so if you don't want to see how it ends, don't hit play. (UPDATE: Actually, don't bother hitting play anyway. The video has been removed due to copyright infringement.)

this morning, i read that a third of the script was actually delivered in Hindi. the fact that i didn't even notice while watching is a good indication of how much the story sucks you in. shooting in mumbai was chaotic, but as director danny boyle said, "if you go with it, if you abandon that kind of control freakery, it will give you something extra.”

that advice can serve as a valuable lesson in marketing as well.
