Danny Boyle, one of the great underrated directors of this era, seems to have another excellent film on his hands. This comes in the form of Slumdog Millionaire, which had its premiere at the Telluride Film Festval over the weekend. The reviews are enthusiastic and promising, with some journalists hinting at potential Oscar prospects. Can’t wait to see it.
On top of the excitement for the new film, indieWIRE reports on some brave new words that Boyle shared during a panel at Telluride. The subject was the future of film distribution, and iW’s Eugene Hernandez writes:
Calling his colleagues on the doom and gloom scenarios they exhibited for much of the discussion, “Slumdog Millionaire” director Danny Boyle implored his fellow panelists “to remember the younger generation”. “We’ve got be very careful moaning about our livelihoods being taken away from us. We’ve got to earn them,” Boyle said, later adding, “What we all fear is that we will lose our jobs.”
