    Exclusive: Alejandro González Iñárritu Talks the Spirituality, Collaborative Nature of 'Biutiful'

    Director Talks His First Collabo With Javier Bardem & Working With His Friend Guillermo del ToroAlejandro González Iñárritu is a challenging filmmaker. This much we already know. With films like "21 Grams" and "Babel," he took major stars and put them in morally complicated quagmires that involved personal choice and global oppression, which made for some very uncomfortable viewing. But nothing he has done is quite as confrontational as "Biutiful," a wonderfully executed, spiritually rich meditation on life and death, told through the point of view of Javier Bardem's streetwise hustler (who himself is dying). It's a performance that won him a...

    Oscar-Winning Actor Also Says Reported Project With Tony Scott Is "Not Real"A dying street hustler with two young children, a bi-polar ex-wife and a dicey career in the black market of Barcelona, Alejandro González Iñárritu's harrowing humanist drama, “Biutiful,” follows the final days of Uxbal, as he struggles to prepare all the parts of his life to go on without him. Oh yes, and to complicate things, the man coming to terms with his own mortality has a special gift/curse; he sees dead people.

    Alejandro González Iñárritu Says The Somber 'Biutiful' Is Actually About "Life"

    When "Biutiful," Alejandro González Iñárritu's searing and deeply-moving (and, granted, at times painfully difficult-to-watch) new film debuted at Cannes this past summer, it was almost universally cut down to size. People said it was too bleak, too hopeless, and no matter how stellar and immersive a performance lead Javier Bardem provided -- and, trust us, it's spectacular; the film's one element that was unanimously praised -- most critics couldn't get behind it (Bardem would go on to win the Best Actor prize in Cannes). Maybe it was the heat stroke, the film festival nature of cramming in four or five films a day, or the looking-for-the-ne...
