At some point in time, I need to compile a list that has my top directors of all time. I usually find myself saying, “this” director or “that” director as being on the best or favorites of mine, and it happens a lot. While this list and rambling might be better suited for that actual post, whenever it gets made, this leads me into one of my favorite directors. No doubt about it, this is top ten quality here folks. Alejandro González Iñárritu, a Mexican director (VIVA MEXICO!) has only four feature films to his filmography, but every single one of the is truly beautiful and moving in every way possible. It is kind of fitting that I use that term “beautiful” as today’s film is titled after the Spanish orthographical spelling of the English word “beautiful”. Like most of his movies, there is a grimmy, dark feeling that showcases the depths of humanity in its darkest times, but ultimately are some of the most gorgeous and heartfelt films around.
