    Solidly engaging, supersized 2000 Mexican drama.

    Name user

    One of the most honored and most expertly articulated Mexican films of recent years.

    Name user

    Recalling Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction - but edgier than both - this is a hell of a first film. For all its bonecrunching savagery, it's also a fundamentally moral work.

    Name user

    It's good and good-looking and features one of the best soundtracks in years ... but it's also slick and schematic, weak on feeling and overly indebted to Tarantino.

    Name user

    Inarritu's talent may be derivative, but it's applied to a setting he knows well and whose vibrancy he's keen to convey.

    3/4

    It's a truly prodigious piece of work, resembling a career summation far more than a maiden voyage.

    Name user

    There aren't many films coming out of Hollywood that work on this many levels.

    [Inarritu] may well be the millennium's first new master film maker.

    Stylishly gritty.

    Name user

    Definitely fierce and most definitely human.

    [The] sense that even hair-trigger lives, always poised on the edge of self-destructive lunacy, deserve to be sympathetically understood is Amores Perros' redeeming grace.

    5/5

    Just keeps coming at you, switching characters, tones, and rhythms to keep you off-guard.

    Name user

    Gonzalez Inarritu spares no detail in his telling, creating an ambitious, starkly realistic movie that just happens to be way too long.

    Name user

    It finds the human beauty that spills out of the knife wounds.

    4/4

    Amores Perros is more than just a strong debut; it's good, gritty filmmaking.

    3/4
    Name user

    An exhilarating debut.

    Name user

    The work of a born filmmaker.

    Name user

    The raw, propulsive vigor of Inarritu's dances of death on the streets of Mexico City mark him as a director who's suddenly very much on the cinematic map.

    Name user

    The cinematic equivalent of a one-two gut punch. In a good way, that is.

    Name user

    Ablaze with a raft of vital portrayals and rich in meaning and implication.

    Name user

    An overpowering and original piece of bravura filmmaking that constitutes one of the most breathtaking and impressive directing debuts in years.

    Name user

    Has the feel of an instant classic, a melodrama with an exacting precision and a visceral, propulsive energy.

    Name user

    A fiercely brilliant film of such wrenching impact, nonstop drive and unpredictability that watching it becomes an exhilarating ride.

    Name user

    Inarritu keeps us involved in at-times tune-outable material.

    Name user

    A film with something to say and a remarkably adult understanding of human passion and the crazy places it leads us.

    Name user

    May be the most repellent great movie you will ever see.

    Name user

    A sophisticated, stylish, fast-moving piece of work.

    Name user

    Though unflinching in its savagery, Amores Perros is always compulsive viewing.

    Name user

    Fierce, loving, and electric, this movie's got bite as well as bark.

    Always clever, and devastating in its depiction of human nature.

    Name user

    Amores Perros (Love's a Bitch) is a great new film from Mexico that proves that somebody, somewhere, is still making upsetting, enthralling movies.

    Name user

    Punishingly overlong.

    Name user

    Amores feels like the first classic of the new decade, with sequences that will probably make their way into history.

    4/5
    Name user

    Divided into three chapters, pic is cunningly constructed and, until near the end, briskly paced.
