Wednesday Night at the Cinematheque
LatinAuteur — Cinema from
Spain to Latin America
(dir. Alejandro Iñarritu, 2000, Mexico) , 154 mins.
Iñarritu interweaves seemingly unrelated storylines with masterful complexity, a style he revisited in Babel (2006). In Amores Perros, a horrific car accident intertwines three stories of loss, regret, and the harsh realities of life, for the sake of love.
Winner: BAFTA Best Foreign Language Film. AFI Award Best Feature.
Oscar nomination: Best Foreign Language film
