Analysis of Amores Perros Film
Analysis of Amores Perros film by Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu .This paper would try to look at how Mexican history is actually portrayed in the movie. In order to achieve this, the researcher would try to look into three main themes: the background of the different people behind the production of this movie (especially the director and the screenwriter), the contemporary socio-cultural, economic, and political contexts during the showing of this film, and on how the film itself portrayed or provided a representation of Mexican society from the historical elements in it. In discussing such themes, the researcher would try to answer the following questions: Does the background of the director and the screenwriter, especially in their class origin, heavily influenced their view of Mexican society, and on how it was portrayed in the movie? How did the film try to represent contemporary issues in the movie (including socio-cultural, political and economic issues)? Did the film attempted to identify the historical roots of the complexities of todays Mexico City as portrayed in the movie, or did they isolate significant historical developments from their portrayal? Body The director behind the highly acclaimed Amores Perros is director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu. Inarritu, born in Mexico City in 1963, actually came from a middle-class family (Deleyto and Azcona x). Not having the resources that the Mexican elite possessed, he started to make a living as a deejay at one radio station, all while he was actually studying filmmaking (Deleyto and Azcona x). In addition, by the 1990s he then started to become one of the youngest producers of the Mexican television station Televisa, which also happened to be one of the premier television stations in the country (Deleyto and Azcona x). For most of the 1990s, Inarritu devoted his time in making commercials, until he finally met Guillermo Arriaga towards the end of the decade (Deleyto and Azcona x). . .
