About the Film
After turning heads with his striking debut Amores Perros, Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu cements his reputation as a boldly talented filmmaker with his first English language film. Naomi Watts has received an Oscar nomination for her stirring performance. The film also stars Sean Penn and Benicio Del Toro. Ambitiously structured in non-chronological fragments that form a fascinating puzzle, this raw drama has drawn critical attention for its bravura craftsmanship and potent performances.
It grips us, moves us, astonishes us… a virtuoso accomplishment. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Time
