‘Biutiful’ Trailer (2010, dir. Alejandro González Iñárritu)

Though no one should be expecting the director of 21 Grams and Babel to be doing a screwball comedy, the trailer for Iñárritu’s newest film Biutiful looks even more dramatic and intense than usual.

Visually compelling, and featuring a lauded, dynamic performance from Oscar-winner Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men), Biutiful looks to be one of the prestige film season’s true winners and quite possibly also one of the most divisive after a thunderously mixed reception at Cannes.

Kudos to Mr. Iñárritu for always mixing risk in equal parts with brains, heart, and vision.
