This movie resonated so well with me. I loved the wide scope of this movie, the overarching themes of the human condition in our gradually globalizing world. The effects of our shrinking world on us.
This movie is an incredible achievement. To be able to bring this story to life, in so many different locations. That's admirable. The actors chosen for each part were brilliant. I especially loved Rinko's performance.
The soundtrack was very noticeable, in a very good way. The cinematography was also working incredibly well. Threw me into whatever scene I was seeing, immersed me into it. Conveyed the beauty.
The tale told was a very miserable one, but I felt like it was honest and true misery. Not some melodrama, it's just the reality of the world we live in. It also didn't feel like some celebration of misery. I could feel that the makers of this movie deeply understood the subjects they were tackling, and were trying to give us a clear and neutral picture of our world. Draw your own conclusions from that.
I enjoyed it immensely, and I think it's a very important movie. Highly recommend it to basically anyone.
Un magistral trabajo narrativo de Alejandro Gonzalez Iñarritu, con empatizables historias y memorables personajes.
