Babel the movie

I just got through watching Babel the movie.  I bought it from Amazon’s Unbox service which is always a joy:

If you are looking for a movie that will make you laugh or a movie with a lot of action, then this movie is not for you.  But if you would like to experience the trouble with human communication through the eyes of an American tourist in Morocco, local people in Morocco, a hispanic lady in San Diego, and a deaf-mute Japanese girl in Tokyo, then this is the movie for you.  This movie can really get you thinking and potentially open your eyes to the pain of being mis-understood.  It also does a good job of showing how self absorbed and disrespectful Americans can sometimes be, even to their fellow American in need.
