Hello everybody! Today, I’m a part of Debuts, hosted by Chris at Terry Malloy’s Pigeon Coop and Mark at Three Rows Back, a blogathon that puts a spotlight on the (you guessed it) debuts of some of today’s most influential directors, and evaluates how their first cinematic works fare against the rest of their filmography.

I went with the debut of one of my favorite filmmakers (and one I had the honor of meeting), Alejandro González Iñárritu (which is, incidentally, also the debut of writer Guillermo Arriaga and actor Gael García Bernal).

2000’s Amores Perros put him on the map and became one of the most important films in the history of Mexican cinema. Alejandro “El Negro” González Iñárritu is a master of interconnected stories and his opera prima was a first glimpse into his signature style.
