  • Babel may be the most ambitious movie of the year, tackling towering communication barriers, global politics and cultural divides in a structurally complex and fascinating narrative. show more

    Disgusting movie. Especially the Japanese part. Honestly, is it necessary to show that kind of ignorance and stupidity in a movie.?
