An intense, multi-layered plot. It is to Gonzalez-Inarritu's credit that each flawed character's plotline is played out fully and perfectly and doesn't get lost in the twisting and turning conjoined masterplot.

Superb multi layered Mexican anthology which is raw, brutal and highly compelling. Borrowing unashamedly from Tarentino, this is an audacious and incredibly ambitious tale featuring deeply flawed and at times unlikable characters who nevertheless elicit sympathy and equal measures of despair. Human nature and sometimes the lack of human kindness are explored fully through three intertwining stories tenuously linked to a horrific car crash. A story about loss, betrayal and responsibility is brilliantly realised in this masterpiece of Mexican cinema.

This movie is intense, well-balanced (heck, what else would you expect from Guillermo Arriaga), and bloody. Okay, so maybe you were expecting nothing (like me) because this was the first movie from Arriaga/Inarritu which sparked two more wonderful collaborations also dealing with connections. May I say it? Gael Garcia Bernal is hot.

I was expecting something different, and what I got was something no more than average. While the performances are good, the film drags and I had trouble connecting to the three stories.

Amores Perros (Love's a Bitch)

One of the best multiple story lines movies created. A personal favorite from the directors trilogy (which include this, 21 Grams and Babel). Masterly woven characters and situations with moral aspects and electrifying acting. The film is divided into three stories, but each character naturally interconnects with each other. First act is about the kindhearted Octavio and self sacrificing Susana. It likewise involves the brother of Octavio, the brute and insensitive Ramiro. Second segment would be about Daniel, who leaves his family for a model named Valeria. The final act is about El Chivo and Maru. Chivo was given a job to dispose somebody and makes amends with his daughter.

Authentic performances from everybody involved. The direction, pace of the story and soundtrack were...
