   Inarritu’s follow-up to the excellent 'Amores Perros' concerns three sets of characters whose lives are altered by a traffic accident.   Interesting non-chronological structure (Inarritu says the film is in emotional, rather than chronological, order).   A powerful emotional experience that I suppose will strike some as ‘depressing’.   It’s fast becoming a cliché to praise this movie’s acting, however Penn, Watts (in her best work since ‘Mulholland Drive’) and Del Toro are indeed very strong.
