Thursday 2nd:Amores Perros
Three interconnected stories, about the different strata of life in Mexico City all resolve with a fatal car accident.
Dog fights, newly-weds and a homeless voyeur of sorts find scope in this tale of loss, death, leading one to dive into the implications of the 'grinding out of life'.
Directed by none other than the man who brought us 21 grams and Babel, and this was only his film debut.
Director:Alejandro González Iñárritu
Awards: Oscar nomination, 51 other award wins and 14 nominations (phew!)
