Matt's Movie Reviews

Babel is a beautifully depressing film about responsibility, redemption, and ultimately that there are consequences to people's actions, regardless of who they are and where they live.

The gimmick-machinery whirrs, but the human beings in it can't breath

Director Alejandro González Iñárritu and writer Guillermo Arriaga have fashioned their ideas with conviction and obvious care.

Cinema Crazed

An ensemble cast, low-key drama, and tolerable political commentary make "Babel" a gripping success.

Babel...belongs to an unfortunately proliferating genre that might be called the higher kitsch.

...language acts more as a means to distance and isolate us than aid in our understanding of one another.

Smart, interesting to look at, and courageous, this is one of the best films of 2006.

There is some hope, in Iñárritu's world, each of the characters may have a family and love, but this is shown to be, at best, a diversion against the real world, which is a much more intolerable, incomprehensive place.

Alejandro González Iñárritu and screenwriter Guillermo Arriaga cap off the trilogy of films that began with "Amores Perros" and "21 Grams" with a rich and engrossing drama.

February 19, 2007

A better title for this film would have been "Murphy's Law," as Inarritu has a relentless grip on the banality of its tenets.

Alejandro González Iñárritu's latest sprawling, dispersed art-film blockbuster prompts a question: Does he just not know how to tell a story?

Babel es más que eso, es contradicción y antítesis, es la obra cumbre y gloriosa de un visionario en un retrato triste y dramático de nuestro mundo.

Observer [UK]

An impressive, beautifully acted work with a tragic sense of life. The formality of its structure controls a seething anger.

Guardian

Well acted and handsomely photographed, but still extraordinarily overpraised and overblown, a middlebrow piece of near-nonsense: the kind of self-conscious arthouse cinema that is custom-tailored and machine-tooled for the dinner-party demographic.

Cinema em Cena

Acaba trazendo [seu diretor e seu roteirista] em um caminho que já percorreram duas vezes %u2013 só que, aqui, eles o fazem de maneira bem mais esquemática, melodramática e, conseqüentemente, menos interessante.

| Original Score: 3/5
