Babel

slated in mainstream at 4:47 am

When I first saw the preview for it in a movie theater, without having ever heard anything of it, the simple portrayal of the movie made me think “Tower of Babel”, and the end of the preview revealed that the movie was in fact called Babel. Have not heard/read reviews of it, beyond a general impression that it is a good movie.

Finally saw it this week.

I thought it was supposed to be generally about language barriers. It has nothing to do with language barriers. It’s not even really about cultural barriers. It’s barriers between individuals.. barriers caused by individuals and government/larger social constructs. barriers between individuals. And some of the best people in the world fall victim; some of the worser people in the world are pitiable; and most people are simply average, some trying to be good, some simply being. ….all sorrowfully isolated in some way…
