Babel

Having now seen Babel, I can only hope that it does, in fact, win Best Picture, but my hopes are dimmed. It's just too good, so it probably won't. It's everything Crash wanted to be without the easy answers, cliches, and pretensions. It's far too intelligent for Hollywood. Beautifully photographed, very well acted, including stand-out performances by an almost unrecognizable Brad Pitt and a heart-breaking Rinko Kikuchi, this is a movie that lingers in the mind.
