Tom's Recommended Film of the Week

Most of this week I've been watching Helen Mirren films, but I'm going to cheat a bit for this weeks recommended film and choose one I viewed a few weeks back called Babel, starring Brad Pitt, Cate Blanchett, Adriana Barraza and Rinko Kikuchi and directed by Alejandro González Iñárritu. It's an intersection type of story with good world ties, fine acting and an interesting moral message. What I take from Babel is the idea that no matter how small we think the world has become through quicker communication methods, we are all still pretty isolated. We stand alone, though we touch many, many lives every day, every minute and our decisions have far reaching effects.

For more information and reviews of Babel you might like to check out the Internet Movie Database. IMDb has tons of information on all films, plus reviews from users and lots of good biographical and filmography data. In fact, for your future reference I think I'll add IMDb to my link list.
