Biutiful (2010)

Alejandro González Iñárritu directs Javier Bardem, Maricel Álvarez and Taishen Cheng in the awards bait, tragedy porn where a despicable exploiter of immigrants in Barcelona deals with his terminal cancer, police bribes, his father corpse, his bi-polar ex and his angelic but bratty kids.

Misery Guts The Movie… showcasing a committed lead performance by Bardem at the expense of all others and a couple of squalor glory shots. Otherwise, it is a voyeuristic defence from a “poor me” scumbag which grates and devalues as it vomits out at length. Who is this overlong pap for apart from the tourist luvvies who made it?
