Amores Perros Reviews

September 25, 2010
Screenwriter Guillermo Arriaga and director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu exert such control over the story that even a cute doggie disappearance develops into a toilet-trained take on "The Telltale Heart." Warts and all, "Amores Perros" is love, actually.

Dozens of shoddy imitators have done nothing to disguise the wit of its narrative construction.
Full Review | Original Score: 9/10
February 8, 2008
Solidly engaging, supersized 2000 Mexican drama.
September 20, 2007
... it is a hyperviolent movie against violence; a graphic portrayal of infidelity in the name of marriage; a tale of murderous sibling rivalry in the name of family.

September 19, 2007
Amores Perros signals the bold, audacious, fiercely human and ultra-violent feature directorial debut of Inarritu, a gifted Mexican director bound to make a mark on international cinema.

July 23, 2007
Gonzalez Inarritu's sinfully enjoyable epic roars in on a wave of blood, gunshots and dog barks.

April 27, 2007
One of the most honored and most expertly articulated Mexican films of recent years.
February 9, 2006
Recalling Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction - but edgier than both - this is a hell of a first film. For all its bonecrunching savagery, it's also a fundamentally moral work.
December 6, 2005
It is that rarest of features that shows a deep understanding of people, truly cinematic storytelling technique and brilliantly choreographed fight and chase scenes.

December 1, 2005
A harrowing, powerful and often disturbing movie about three seemingly unrelated stories that collide after one horrific car accident in Mexico City.

November 16, 2003
Seemingly uneven, Questionably overlong, Indisputably intriguing

It is a raw, intermittently brilliant film that heralds a sort of renaissance in Mexican film.

October 30, 2002
Astonishingly powerful debut film from director Inarritu - brilliantly shot, superbly acted and deeply heartfelt, this is one of the best films of the year.

October 29, 2002
It's good and good-looking and features one of the best soundtracks in years ... but it's also slick and schematic, weak on feeling and overly indebted to Tarantino.
October 21, 2002
A good and extremely ambitious first effort.
October 15, 2002
Fresh, shocking, violent, romantic, profane and profound, Amores Perros is a revelation, a jolt of cinematic power and a bracing act of faith.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
July 12, 2002
The biggest strength of Amores Perros is its display of humanity at its worst when it is driven by primal attachments.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10

Amores Perros es una cinta capaz de pegarnos intensamente en la mirada pero también en el espíritu.
| Original Score: 9.5/10

Inarritu's talent may be derivative, but it's applied to a setting he knows well and whose vibrancy he's keen to convey.
