SiIencio's rating of the film 21 Grams

Ultra-dramatic high-octane extra-long feature by visceral director González Iñárritu. The suffering of everyone walking on two legs in the film is relentless and that helps the feeling of force-fed gratuitous carnage. Three characters linked by rocambolesque fate. A fragmented editing but not unpleasant. If Iñárritu wanted to elucubrate about the ulterior nature of life and death, I'm afraid that he missed the target
