Review: Babel

And here we have another multi-threaded time-shifting inter-locking story, which is quite becoming a commodity these days. This one focuses on some personal tragedy divided over a few storylines and locations, and it wouldn’t be a tragedy if all of it happens to all the people in a short period of time. From a drama perspective, this only works half. Mostly since this whole thing is event-driven and dragged out and stretched thin. And I mean, it’s really really loooooong, filled with the director trying to capture sequences that might jog your visual and auditory senses a bit, but certainly doesn’t stimulate any particular feeling in the brains. Best comparison I can come up with is, you’ll kinda have to see this as shallow Magnolia rip-off, that while is shorter, feels longer.6-.
