There are so many other movies of this genre, that accomplished a lot more than this one! It was a nice try, just tried too hard and ended up unoriginal and shallow.

Try Amores Perros, Traffic, and City of God... you'll love these 3 if you liked 21 grams.

Good film; Well crafted; Strong cast. I enjoyed it. :cool:

lovelight: I'm not sure I'd say that, "Traffic," did a better job as a non-linear, ensemble, piece (if that's the genre you mean?) than this did. I thought traffic was rather weak...

yeah... just thought i'd chuck those in! not necessarily stylistically similar.. but i thought they were good and still related.
i thought 21 grams was weak! a bit predictable hehehe... despite benicio del toro being in it!!!! fear and loathing all the way!

hehe now i'm really going off track
:grin:

    Seriously.  I take issue with your dismissive air.  Fine if you're a film student or focused on a genre.  I'm sorry, but, that flick did me good.  I say, "Okay."  :thumbup: :thumbup:

The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when he contemplates the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery every day. Never lose a holy curiosity. ~ Albert Einstein

I really liked 21 Grams. A lot of the people I talked to thought the nonlinear editing was stupid and gimmicky, but I think the movie would have been just as good if it had been linear. It sucked that Naomi Watts wasn't nominated for anything. She was awesome.
:cheers:
