Francisco R.'s rating of the film Amores perros

With its comic book sensibilities, hackneyed sense of conflict and immaculate craft, amores perros could have been -and perfectly- a talented adolescent adventure, with nothing more to say than to elicit a few jolts and guilty kicks from the audience; but the pretentiousness -caused in fact by overreaching thoughtlessness- is so unbearable that the film sends itself to the gallows.
