Theatre weekend

Jess and I saw both Gran Torino and then Slumdog Millionaire.

One thing I like about Gran Torino is how the title represents the film's idea of transferring virtue from one generation to the next regardless of race or even family relations.

Something worth mention regarding Slumdog Millionaire is that if you thought the urban decay of the US is bad, with, in Nas' words, "The streets is jet-black / the fiends fight to get crack," you're in for a wicked glance at India's brutal underworld. The film makes Dickens' and William Blake's nightmare vision of child poverty look anodyne.

I woud like to write Associated Content reviews of both, and Slumdog is the better of the two, in my opinion.
