program date: 
Mon, 02/07/2011

 Jan and Denise discuss Mexican director  Alejandro González Iñárritu's  "Biutiful," which follows one man's struggle raising his children by himself while working in the Barcelona underground after he discovers he is dying. They explore charges of melodrama and cynicism, but point out the film's emotional complexity and fraught morality that fail to fit into neat hollywood categories. They also bring up the political character of the film and how it exposes viewers to global capitalism by way of the Barcelona underground and the character's own neuroses.
