I went to go see a showing at the university tonight at the last minute because I had missed it in theaters and really wanted to see it.
It reminded me of Love Actually. You know how in Love Actually all these little well written stories are entertwined and end up coming together leaving you with a warm gooey feeling inside? Well Babel stories are also very well written and perfectly entertwined stories, however you leave with the feeling like slitting your throat might just be a good 'ol time comparetively.
It is one of those kinds of movies where you think, how could it get any worse? Oh... nevermind there it just did...
There were some very powerful moments and a few surprises (the best one being an unknown-to-me apperance of my favorite Mexican actor!) and overall it is very, almost poetic movie.
