Amores Perros (2000)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.1/10 X  
A horrific car accident connects three stories, each involving characters dealing with loss, regret, and life's harsh realities, all in the name of love. (154 mins.)
“ English subtitles here . (Love's a bitch). Award winning Mexican movie about man's cruelty to man constructed from three distinct stories linked by a car accident that brings the characters briefly together.
Depressing interesting view of life in Mexico city , dog fights , and society. Sexual and violent instincts prevent people from seeing the big picture . I liked it , unpredictable pace with intelligence . 8/10 . Recommended . Not for entertainment value, but to relfect on lifestyle choices. See review in wikipedia for details. RG

Death Sentence (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
Nick Hume is a mild-mannered executive with a perfect life, until one gruesome night he witnesses something that changes him forever. Transformed by grief, Hume eventually comes to the disturbing conclusion that no length is too great when protecting his family. (105 mins.)
Director: James Wan
“ Kevin Bacon . In the style of Death Wish. Reminding us of the New Rule . When the line of the law is crossed by one party, it is understood that the line of law no longer applies for the other party. There's a need to rebalance the equation, and the justice system can't effect the rebalancing. Sometimes it takes frequent crossings before its obvious the rules no longer apply to the victim . We need a wedsite where we can sign up when help is needed to rebalance . Not the best production film. but I liked it because of rebalancing techniques employed. The need to rebalance here is presented on the side of two victims- stay open minded . If you have a need to rebalance, this is a prescription film to see . RG 6/10 . Reserved recommendation. ” - hcci
