How has this film had no good discussions. The best has three comments! This is one if the best and most important films of the last decade. Great film, should've won best picture Oscar in '07.

I also want to say how achingly beautiful it is. There are so many individual frames in this movie that look like a painting, especially in the Japanese subplot. The visual contrasts and continuities between the 4 countries is breathtaking. The cinematographer deserves commending for this, everything in this film comes together so smoothly and is immensely striking. It leaves you with images in your head that stay there a long time.

Summary of Bebel: Stupid people make stupid decisions, except for the Americans who are only victims of the stupid decisions made from dumb and drunk Mexicans and trigger-happy terrorists. Oh, and there's a slutty Japanese girl that can't seem to keep her panties on. /sarcasm. ALL OF THAT said, the film has its moments of beauty and excellence... it's a shame that much frustration accompanies it. I understand what the film is saying -- it was just so difficult to care when I'm yelling "WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT!?" at the screen half the time.

The Americans are the victims, everyone else is either evil, stupid or both. Even the Mexican nanny is dirty...

Not as good as the first two of Inarritu's trilogy, but still pretty good.
