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...

  • It's hilarious that I was cleaning my room and picking up a whole bunch of old movie ticket stubs (I like to keep them) and thinking I've got to figure out a better way to store them. Viola! Perfect timing.
