I recently got the chance to sit down and chat with one of my cinematic heroes, Danny Boyle, while he was promoting the release of his new film Slumdog Millionaire in Boston. I’ll discuss the movie on a later episode of Slashfilm’s movie podcast (it is my favorite film of the year) but in the meantime, here’s some audio from the interview, where we talk about some of Boyle’s inspirations and his favorite films.
