Babel is the latest film from the pair Alejandro González Iñárritu and Guillermo Arriaga. I liked this film a lot, even more then their previous films together — 21 grams and Amores Perros, both of which are excellent. The movie follows 3 stories, loosely connected: one set in Tokyo, one in rural Morocco, and one in San Diego and Mexico. It’s a solid film. The shots are all beautiful, the acting top notch, and the story is well done. I liked the Japanese story line the best. It’s so intense. They all are really. You need to watch this film.

Don't be shy, you can comment too!

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google": will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
