Sending shock waves through the Mexican film industry and the world, this blistering feature debut from Alejandro González Iñárritu brought the director’s electrifying visual style and bravura multistrand storytelling to the screen with the heart-stopping impact of a primal scream. In Mexico City, the lives of three strangers—a young man (Gael García Bernal) mixed up in the gritty underworld of dogfighting, a glamorous woman (Goya Toledo) who seems to have it all, and a mysterious assassin (Emilio Echevarría) who is desperate to reconnect with his estranged daughter—collide in a tragic twist of fate that forever alters their personal journeys. A tour de force of violence and emotion captured in a rush of kinetic handheld camera work, Amores perros is an unforgettable plunge into a world of brutality and aching, interconnected humanity.

I'm wondering what is being "restored" in a film made from 2000?

The blu-ray
1600376323590.png
is still available and we loose the commentary ...

  • Audio Commentary with Director Alejandro González Iñárritu and Writer Guillermo Arriaga Jordan is in Spanish, with English subtitles.

  • Deleted Scenes (480p; 17:45) features optional commentary (again in Spanish) by Inarritu.

  • Featurette (480p; 8:09) is an enjoyable enough EPK with good behind the scenes footage. In Spanish with English subtitles.

  • Los Perros (480p; 6:19) takes a look at the dogs in the film. In Spanish with English subtitles.

  • Me Van a Matar Music Video (480p; 4:06) features Juliet Venega.

  • Avientame Music Video (480p; 3:30) features Cafe Tacuba.

  • De Perros Amores Music Video (480p; 4:03) features Control Machete and and Ely Guerra.

Great movie I purchased the international Blu-ray 2 years ago and I am happy with it. Not sure if I will buy the Criterion release.
