Amores Perros

Amores Perros ★★★★

“You want to give God a laugh? Tell him your plans.”

This stunning masterpiece begins with an opening scene that really grabs your fucking attention, and from there takes you for a ride. Multiple storylines intersect in a Pulp Fiction-esque way, but I might venture to say that Amores Perros does the interconnected plot even better than that film. At the very least it is much more heartfelt and full of raw human pathos. The characters that populate these stories are forced to undergo radical emotional and physical transformations as the events of the film culminate, and the monologue that takes place at the climax of one character’s journey is among the most heart-rending I’ve ever seen. Another character has a picture of Goku on his wall, so automatic 4. This is the type of movie that makes me glad that movies exist
