The stories never come together in a way that really enlightens, but that's not to say the film is anything less than entertaining.

Even with its flaws, it will be hard to find a film with as many complex characters inhabiting its world as this.

First-time director Alejandro González Iñárritu has taken an original story and fashioned it into a tale that is gritty, multifaceted, and brimming with edgy performances.

Filmmaker Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu conveys an urgency and a compassion that ultimately make this grim picture strangely uplifting.

It's a truly prodigious piece of work, resembling a career summation far more than a maiden voyage.

An ambitious multi-plotted portrait of overlapping lives in contemporary Mexico City, Amores perros rarely relaxes its grip.

Nominated for an Oscar as best foreign-language film, it's a movie that's all over the lot (and interestingly so).

This is first-rate filmmaking, horrific and tender, raw and lyrical.

The structure lacks purpose, the film struggles to justify its two-and-a-half-hour running time and the faint-hearted might find it a little gory.

There aren't many films coming out of Hollywood that work on this many levels.
Steve Schneider

The occasional juxtaposition of human copulation and dog-on-dog violence makes for a pretty sophomoric metaphor. Otherwise, the movie's perception is on target.

In a single film, director Alejandro González Iñárritu balances stories and moods as diverse as canine breeds.
