Director Alejandro Gonzales Inarritu (remember that name) had interwoven three sperate stories into one massive masterpiece. Warning: you must be of stout heart to take some of the harrowing dog-fight scenes and dog injuries which are only a subtext to the exciting but everyday lives of the priciple characters. There's also an unforgettable performance by Emelio Echevarria who observes much of the action, but figure prominently into the whole patchwork. And although the kind of film which jumps back and forward in time can sometimes be hard to follow; not once will you ever be in doubt as to what is transpiring. Let's hope that this fine first-time director won't fade away as quickly as Quentin Tarentino, by not topping this extraordinary effort. Even so, it won't matter, this film is that good.
