Amores Perros

2000 • R • Drama, Crimes & Thrillers, International

Lives collide in a Mexico City car crash.

WHY WE PICKED IT: '21 Grams' director Alejandro González Iñárritu made his feature debut with this slick, savage story examining the true meaning of loyalty.

A fateful car crash connects three Mexico City stories in this inventively structured triptych whose title roughly translates to “Love’s a Bitch"": Octavio, a man in love with his brother's pregnant wife; Valeria, a model whose married lover leaves his family to be with her, only to lose a leg in an accident the day they move in together; and El Chivo, a vagrant who sidelines as a paid killer.

DIRECTOR: Alejandro González Iñárritu

CAST: Emilio Echevarría, Gael García Bernal, Goya Toledo
