Amores Perros Reviews
Saw this on 2/8/16
It started off really well, reminding me of City of God, but the film loses its steam by the end and succumbs into a tedious and boring drama. El Chivo's story was mostly intriguing when it was shown in between the other two stories, but when Chivo gets the last 45 minutes to himself, it is simply boring and the entire film loses its purpose. The first tow stories, especially the dog fight one is terrific.
Amores Perros often screams gritty ingenuity, but it heavily relies on being emotional and controverisal with each story and sometimes forgets that the other stories matter just as much, making it feel like a fairly uneven but always engaging experience.
Review en Español:
Amores Perros es perfecta, una obra de culto increíble y visualmente espectacular y con una historia y unos personajes muy bien desarrollados, la obra maestra que le dio el reconocimiento mundial a Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu es perfecta, única y original. Es como Pulp Fiction, pero en México.
