in breaking news: babel. filtering this film through the perspective of an american couple presents the same message as midnight express. in other words, "aren't foreigners simply awful?"

here is a summary of what i think babel is really about:
1. moroccans are gunhappy nutters who only have one ambulance.
2. mexicans can't be trusted with children.
3. brits and french can't be trusted with a minibus and will abandon the yanks in the lurch.
4. the damn japs started it all, either with a hunting gun or pearl harbour.

By half-time of Babel, I was ignoring the plot completely.

There are supposedly 5 or 6 things you still can't show in film, and I spent the rest of the movie making a list and ticking them off in my head as they happened. I could almost imagine the filmmakers sitting around and toasting themselves for being 'subversive.'
Whoa, there's some major activity happening here! What have I missed? Friend me again? I personally thought Babel rocked.. but half of that is because I adore Alejandro..=D Hope everything is well, speak soon! And hey, about those grass skirts...
