Slumdog millionaire

This "comedy" is great! It's about how a young man whose life has been hell in the indian slum manages to get into the TV show Who wants to be a millionaire.

I wouldn't call the movie a comedy at all, though. It's a depiction of hell. And what makes me so damn angry is that while kids live in hell we spend billions on fancy housing and totally unnecessary luxury. The world needs more socialism! Money has a tendency to stick together - fewer people are getting very much richer while the masses are getting poorer. Just look at the USA! China is doing quite well. Why? Because the capitalistic system is controlled! Money has to be actively taken from the rich and given to the poor, invested in infrastructure, schools, health care, in short - investing in the mutual future. Why was the USA so successful after WWII? The New Deal! Why was Sweden so successful? The Social Democrats! Everywhere in history you see that equality leads to prosperity, and that collection of wealth to a few is the beginning of the end. So act, while there is still time!
