movie freak at work
ok the movie freak is at work. yesterday i saw babel and lemme tell you its one heck of a movie.i mean alejandro gonzalez inarritu couldn't have done any better than what he came up with. the name 'babel' comes from a hebrew verb 'balal' which means to confuse.the film interweaves the unfortunate circumstances that a morrocan , an american , a mexican and a japanese family faces. even though the movie had some of the biggest names of hollywood like cate blanchett and brad pitt , rinko kikuchi steals the show as chieko wataya. rinko's portrayal of a deaf and dumb japanese school girl who craves for human contact but is rejected because of her abnormality was simply superb. and all that cate blanchett did throughout the movie was scream out in pain which got pretty gross in the end. so i suggest that all of you who call yourselves movie freaks - like me check the movie out. trust me you'll have something to think about after you see the movie. three cheers to gonzalez!
