    My Favorite Films Of 2010: Gabe Toro

    I was pleased to find that, as Playlist writers, we were encouraged to publish our own 10 best lists for 2010. We often have differing opinions, and how could we not?

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

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...
