Slumdog Millionaire
Danny Boyle's crowd-pleasing Slumdog Millionaire may be drenched in the saffron and violet palettes of its Mumbai setting, but it plays like a classic Hollywood rags-to-riches love story.

Sunshine
The sci-fi reunion of Danny Boyle and Cillian Murphy (28 Days Later) is never less than beautiful but has a profoundly implausible plot turn that cheapens the sentiment.

Crossing the Bridge: The Sound of Istanbul
This trip through musical Istanbul is a little prettier than it is deep, but it provides a window into the variegated subcultures of a city one musician calls “a bridge crossed by 72 nations.”

Even though Born Into Brothels – winner of the 2004 Oscar for Best Documentary – is a devastating portrait of impoverished Calcutta children who are born into the sex trades, the film is also an inspiring document about human possibilities.
