[Iñarritu] has captured humanity in all of its flawed glory - fallen yet beautiful, tragic yet hopeful - all crying out to be heard.

There are moments when a lot is left unsaid. There's a remarkable stillness and delicacy as the music and images interplay and do all the talking.

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.
June 30, 2009
Director Alejandro González Iñárritu and writer Guillermo Arriaga have fashioned their ideas with conviction and obvious care.

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.

an affecting examination of disconnected lives in an interconnected world.

Smart, interesting to look at, and courageous, this is one of the best films of 2006.

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.
January 27, 2007
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.

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.
January 16, 2007
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.
