Drama, Foreign
This Mexican Oscar nominee for Best Foreign Language Film lost to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon in 2000, but it's a much smarter, more original film, and it's every bit as entertaining as the kung fu flick that defeated it. Weaving together three stories of difficult love, Amores Perros pays homage to Tarantino's Pulp Fiction without being just another derivative imitation. Plus it features convincing acting, engaging plotting and lots of pretty, fluffy dogs. Just like all the great movies used to do.
