The scope and ambition of Babel is to be applauded

Sat Feb 12, 2011 11:59 am by maggie901



All three stories are linked both by circumstance and theme to create a unifying motif. Inarritu's penchant for playing with time and jumping between the storylines has the effect of breaking tension rather than increasing it. Where Babel does succeed is showing how inadvertent actions can have devastating effects.

All three stories are linked both by circumstance and theme to create a unifying motif. Inarritu's penchant for playing with time and jumping between the storylines has the effect of breaking tension rather than increasing it. Where Babel does succeed is showing how inadvertent actions can have devastating effects.

Pitt is admirably unglamorous as the distraught Richard, who frantically tries to deal with Moroccan bureaucracy to get help for his wife. Wastefully Blanchett is given little to do other than wince and Gael Garcia Bernal appears all too briefly as Amelia's wayward nephew. The striking Rinko Kikuchi, in a starkly vulnerable and brave performance, provides Babel with its emotional core, quite an achievement without words.

Inarritu is undoubtedly a gifted and impassioned director. The scope and ambition of Babel is to be applauded, but making it more concise and providing some coruscating moments by way of contrast would not have diluted its impact and would perhaps have made it more compelling.
