Entertainment Weekly
Fierce, loving, and electric, this movie's got bite as well as bark.

San Francisco Chronicle
There's a seething moral core in Amores Perros that uses the canine savagery as an entre to human brutality.
100
Wall Street Journal
One of the great films of our time, or any other.
100
Philadelphia Inquirer
An overpowering and original piece of bravura filmmaking that constitutes one of the most breathtaking and impressive directing debuts in years.
100
Chicago Tribune
A stunner: a fiercely brilliant film of such wrenching impact, nonstop drive and unpredictability that watching it becomes an exhilarating ride.
100
Miami Herald
Has the feel of an instant classic, a melodrama with an exacting precision and a visceral, propulsive energy.
90
It's a film of high energy, punctuated by rock music and a dark wit, yet it is capable of profound reflection and tragic irony.
88
The gritty, Oscar-nominated "Traffic" is a limo ride compared with the bloodletting in this year's foreign-film nominee from Mexico.
88
New York Daily News
Strong stuff, compelling drama.
88
Chicago Sun-Times
Amores Perros will be too much for some filmgoers, just as "Pulp Fiction" was and "Santa Sangre" certainly was, but it contains the spark of inspiration.
88
Boston Globe
As bloody as any recent film. But it's shot through with a harsh, stony humor that's invigorating enough to be regarded as a slap back at death.
80
Mr. Showbiz
Though unflinching in its savagery, Amores Perros is always compulsive viewing.
