Babylon manages to acquire the holy trinity, the three crucial pillars of cinema. Namely, piss, vomit and shit. If that doesn't draw a cultured individual as yourself, I don't know what will.
The scenes often drag a bit which contradict the chaos, causing the direction to drift away.

The movie acts both as a satirical take and an ode to the olden days of the American film industry. The title says it all.
