Wow. What a real piece of shit. I watched it last night and I still don't know what the point of the movie is. We're all linked in this wild and crazy world? Isn't that what we learned last year when we were forced to sit through Crash?
OK, lessons from Babel:
1. Don't leave the United States, because you'll either be shot or stranded in the Mexican desert.
2. Japanese teenagers are horny.
3.Don't shoot at buses.
The movie is even more frustrating because the acting is superb and many of the scenes are expertly directed; but in the end it was a really crappy movie.
