A 'Pulp Fiction'-esque film dealing with several characters and how they are all interconnected amongst the dirty, bleak streets of Mexico City, where dogfighting is common and how a vicious car crash wrecks the lives of those involved. Director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu is a v...

After a dog-fighter crashes into a supermodel, the film depicts each person's story.
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's films never surpassed this, his first effort. An extraordinarily well-told story, Amores Perros reaches the Altman Standard for intersecting stories. Linked by th...

Love's A Bitch is a multi-layered and well-articulated mock to humanity's understanding of loyalty. Violent and profound. Aggressive and cruel. Prodigious.

"Amores Perros" is the mesmerizing directorial debut from Alejandro González Iñárritu. The film is fiercely affecting and involving. Iñárritu's handle over the pacing of his three interlaced short stories is invigorating. The character's in Iñárritu's world only know one currency...

Disturbing, yet really really good. A rather long movie, but it was completely worth it. I love Gael Garcia Bernal, and his performance in this was superb, as usual. Nominated for 2001 Academy Award, and it absolutely deserved it.

I thought this was a vile film about dog fighting and how peoples lives become messed up. The dog fighting was horrible, I just didn't want to see stuff like that. It shows how greedy and selfish some of those leaders were by using their dogs and giving them pain and even getting...

I think that I can honestly say that this is one of the greatest movies ever made. It might not be as obvious as most, but this film manages to tell a story in a way that no one has ever managed to do before. Each segment tells a very different story, but all manage to show real ...

"If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans"
Exquisite cinema, but a hard, hard watch for animal lovers (like me).

An interesting and entirely involving prototype to the "hyperlink" film that's had more than its share of attention in Hollywood lately. Even though this is probably one of the quickest two and a half hours I've ever spent with a movie, I do wish that the film was created with mo...
