I am 29 years old and have probably sat through well over 1000 films, this still sits within my top 10. Acting, pace, storyline, viewer's emotions are all stuffed hurridly into a washing machine and put into spin. The film, as is well documented, is split within 3 stories with some overt themes being shared to interconnect them. Ignore the poor reviews on amazon, I have read them all and they comprise of:
"I switched it off because of the dog-fighting". Get a grip, it's not real. "Unrewarding blah blah" by one budding pretentious film crtic. Not high-brow enough apparently(!)
Buy it, it is a must have for anyone. Toning it down to satisfy the popcorn-Hollywood induced crowd would've ruined the films gritty, unpolished feel which heightens its realism.
The smattering of awards which 'clog up' the case are all richly deserved.
