Alejandro González Iñárritu, Biutiful, 2010.
Norman N. Holland
Here are some questions that occurred to me and other viewers as we watched this film.
- Where does the title of the film come from?
- What are the snow scenes? And what is “over there”?
- Why the name Uxbal?
- Why are the Chinese gay?
- Why the grotesque nightclub scene with misplaced breasts?
- Why the story of the dying owl and the featherball?
- Why the two stones?
In a separate file, I offer my answers, but you may prefer to work them out on your own.
