Babel is one movie that anyone with as much patience as a woman in labour should never watch. In fact, you shouldnt even try to see the posters, or get tempted by the “beautiful cinematography”, and other such comments that friends might make to entice you to watch.
I unfortunately did.
I found the story line naive, the fractured sadness of every cast member including the poor Winchester Rifle unbearable, and the mere presence of Brad Pitt intolerable. Sigh…if only there was a flickr set of the images in the movie, my 2 hours and extra minutes would have been better spent looking at them rather than watching the movie.
I am still reeling from the effects of this movie. I have warned you.
