ReviewSource ReelViews
Review Babel is a masterwork from a director whose each effort re-enforces his international reputation. This movie is as mature and potent a piece of cinema as 21 Grams, and a worthy conclusion to Inarritu and screenwriter Guillermo Arriaga's "trilogy." This is cathartic, thought-provoking, emotionally solid movie-making. It's the kind of cinema I hope to see whenever I sit down in a theater to view a drama. Whether viewed amidst a flood of pictures in the middle of a film festival or on its own in a local multiplex, Babel stands out from the crowd. Its complex (yet not mystifying) storytelling, forceful character development, and superb cinematography make this a candidate for one of 2006's best offerings.

Review Challenging, consistently surprising, and etched in heartfelt sorrow, Inarritu's third and reportedly final collaboration with screenwriter/novelist Guillermo Arriaga is a spellbinding and superbly acted nonlinear, multi-layered narrative that gradually reveals the mysterious connection linking strangers in Morocco, Tokyo, Southern California, and Mexico...Brilliantly shot by cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto (an Oscar nominee for Brokeback Mountain), Babel will likely bore and/or alienate viewers seeking a conventional narrative where everything falls neatly into place and situations are tidily resolved...The result is a richly nuanced, at times shattering film that brings Inarritu's "Death Trilogy" to a stunning close.
