Babel is difficult to watch, but the film should be a must see for writers. Communication, and lack of it, is the theme of this excellent screenplay by Guillermo Arriaga. It focuses on how we connect with others using sounds, words and actions, which can change our own lives and create a ripple that might effect the entire world. A powerful message.

Thanks for the review - I have the movie in my Netflix queque- it comes out on dvd Feb 20th -- just before the Oscars.

So many movies so little time.

Another movie for writers - Miss Potter, about Beatrix Potter.

Oh, thanks for that reminder. My youngest loves hearing Beatrix Potter read aloud—and I love reading it.
