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.

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

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

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.

The kind of film that will echo deep in your soul.

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.

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.

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

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

You can't make the same film three times and not expect people to carp. Go and see it with politically-minded friends and thrash it out afterwards over coffee.

Babel can be unnecessarily convoluted, ultimately though it's the stark simplicity of the dilemmas faced by each character that hits home, wherever that may be.

For all its contrivances, Babel offers a gripping treatise on fate, chance and language with an epic sweep that leaves you marvelling at its ambition.

The idea of the ripple effect of events has been handled by other movies that I somehow was hoping there would be something deeper or more meaningful in the message of Babel.
