Amores Perros was another of these formulaic stories where you take n unconnected stories and then through the course of the film tie them all together into one coherent point. Done well, it’s meant to say something poignant about: love, sex, relationships, hate, rage, commitment, violence, society, culture, and just about anything else important.
This film in particular was made before this model became a) the automatic model for artsy films b) used in big-budget hollywood productions as well (and thus sucky — yes, Crash, I’m talking about you).
All of that said, I felt like this film went on forever, and just wasn’t that moving or involving. Oh well. 5/10.
