My favorite Departed Quote

I don’t want to be a product of my environment. I want my environment to be a product of me

– Frank Costello – Departed

I’ve not seen many Jack Nicholson movies before. But as “Mr. Costello” in Departed, he is God.

BABEL – The Movie

January 8, 2007 at 11:16 pm (Personal)

Watched BABEL with friends this weekend at PVR Bangalore. Movie started about 30 minutes late and that cost us thirty bucks each for a cup of Ice tea. (Yuk, I don’t like this drink either – but coffee was not served :( )

Someone told me it’s a pulp fiction class. Man! he was wrong! totally! One common aspect though is Babel belongs to “uncategorized” category of movies. Can’t say its drama, no action, no thriller either. It cannot be categorized in to any one bucket, its “general” or in other words, “uncategorized” (or should we rename “uncategorized” to “tarantino”? )

Personally, I kind of liked the movie. It’s PURE CINEMA and don’t got looking for an entertainer in this and get disappointed. Brad Pitt really made a good decision acting in this one compared to the mostly meaningless acting performances he got in Oceans 11 et al.

Nice screeplay and some really talented direction by “Alejandro González Iñárritu” ( Yeah, just copy+pasted it from IMDB! Never could pronounce it nor spell it :))

I don’t’ quite understand why the movie was named “Babel” – Babel AFAIK denotes “Tower of Babel” and probably the story of the birth of evil as created by God. Many characters in this movie have flawed thinking and probably that’s why.

Anyways, worth the money and a must watch. Don’t take your girl-friend along though; it’s certainly not a DATE movie!
