Amores Perros Reviews

February 8, 2008
Solidly engaging, supersized 2000 Mexican drama.

On screen, Gonzalez Inarritu's alarm registers loud and clear.

One of the most honored and most expertly articulated Mexican films of recent years.

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.

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.

[Inarritu's] triumph - helped by a cast of unknown actors who more than meet the standards of Hollywood venismo - is to give so lurid a sequence of events the force of reality; and make a story of relentless bleakness, oddly uplifting.

... an invigorating film filled with vivid performances, haunting scenes, and messy, intense emotions, a violent portrait of modern day Mexico City grounded in frustration, helplessness, and messy, intense emotions.

Gripping but gory subtitled drama isn't for the squeamish.
