Babel

January 15, 2007

I just finished watching Babel, the new film of Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu and Guillermo Ariaga. I watched their other movie Amores Perros as well. Yet, Babel is to me more disturbing. Maybe disturbing is not the right word, I don’t know. It makes me sit quietly, probably I won’t be able to fall asleep right away afterwards.

As the title suggesting Babel in my opinion is a glimpse of our own life, or should I say tragedy? It’s a rich movie which just like a good book deserves another read. The drama of our daily life hits me right through, we may talk the same language but we do not communicate. In fact we are so busy talking all the time that we do not listen. Do we forget how to listen? Or worse, we didn’t even bother to learn.

You’d better watch it yourself. Perhaps you will see something else.

    I thought Babel was excellent. Perhaps a little slow paced for some tastes and does not deliver any great “aha” moment, but it is life in all it s ironic sadness.

    Is “Amores Perros” same with “Love is a Bitch”? If it is, then it’s a really great movie! If you said Babel is more disturbing than Amores Perros, then it must be even a better movie.
