Sample text

Each story has and needs to find its own way of being told. “It’s like everything else: Tequila you have to serve in a small glass, The Films of Alejandro González Iñárritu | 19 because the flavor is different if you serve it in a tall glass; or whiskey or champagne: they have their own form. And I think sometimes form is intrinsic to the essence of the thing” (Iñárritu qtd. in Littger 188). Comments of this sort were recurrent when Iñárritu and Arriaga were asked about the narrative structures of Amores perros, 21 Grams, and Babel.

When Amores perros came out, its depiction of violence was immediately noticed by commentators and compared to the films of Buñuel and Ripstein (it was released in the same year as La perdición de los hombres but to much greater acclaim and audience visibility). For Marvin D’Lugo, Iñárritu had learned from those two masters that “the devastating portrait of visceral violence and fatalism” had become the most successful image of Mexico abroad (229). Claudia Schaefer pointed out that Iñárritu’s refusal to cut away when showing moments of intense emotion or violence may make international spectators squirm, but Mexican society is apparently unshockable (86).

By multiplying the number of main characters and adopting temporal simultaneity as its organizing principle, the film emphasizes the role played by fortuity and chance over cause-and-effect links and thus joins other multiprotagonist films in challenging the notion, so often championed in other genres, of an all-powerful individual whose actions can propel the world regardless of external circumstances. In Amores ­perros, broken dreams and failed plans link each character and episode to the next: from Octavio’s hoped-for trip with Susana to Ciudad Juárez to 30 | Alejandro González Iñárritu Daniel and Valeria’s glamorous life together and el Chivo’s revolutionary ideals.
