Violent, fast-paced, explicit. D’accord pour le Prix de la mise en scène, but…
“(…) Babel is an infuriatingly well-made disaster. (…) Arriaga and Iñárritu, confusing sheer dread with dramatic tension, make
us suffer, but in that case we had better learn something new, and I’m
not sure there’s much to be learned (…)”
(The New Yorker)
Amazing Kôji Yakusho performance though.
