Babel (2006)

ACHIEVEMENT IN MUSIC WRITTEN FOR MOTION PICTURES (Original Score) In the remote sands of the Moroccan desert, a rifle shot rings out--detonating a chain of events that will link an American tourist couple’s frantic struggle to survive, two Moroccan boys involved in an accidental crime, a nanny illegally crossing into Mexico with two American children and a Japanese teen rebel whose father is sought by the police in Tokyo. Separated by clashing cultures and sprawling distances, each of these four disparate groups of people are nevertheless hurtling towards a shared destiny of isolation and grief. In the course of just a few days, they will each face the dizzying sensation of becoming profoundly lost--lost in the desert, lost to the world, lost to themselves--as they are pushed to the farthest edges of confusion and fear as well as to the very depths of connection and love. The film stars Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, Gael Garcia Bernal, Elle Fanning and Koji Yakusho. The film depicts the lack of communication and intolerance among people. From the precarious situation of undocumented Mexicans and destitute Moroccan families, couples in crisis, dysfunctional families and the shadow of terrorism, Babel's somewhat pontifical attitude clouds its beautiful message. An interesting film nonetheless...

  • I guess this one is more for the south americans (like me) because of the historical content and motivations of Che Guevara, but it's a great adventure of discovery of America. The other America.

  • Definitely not a movie you want to watch with your parents/kids. Seriously. Don't get the watered-down R-rated version; that's hella lame.

Emilio Echevarría, Gael García Bernal, Goya Toledo, Álvaro Guerrero, Vanessa Bauche, Jorge Salinas, Marco Pérez. Amores Perros Roughly translates to "Love's a bitch," and it's an apt summation of this remarkable film's exploration of passion, loss, and the fragility of our lives. In telling three stories connected by one traumatic incident, Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu uses an intricate screenplay by novelist Guillermo Arriaga to make three movies in close orbit, expressing the notion that we are defined by what we lose--from our loves to our family, our innocence, or even our lives. These interwoven tales--about a young man in love with his brother's pregnant wife, a perfume spokeswoman and her married lover, and a scruffy vagrant who sidelines as a paid killer--are united by a devastating car crash that provides the film's narrative nexus, and by the many dogs that the characters own or care for.
