Movie Poster REDUX: Alejandro González Iñárritu's "Babel" [2006]

We wrap up our series of movie posters celebrating National Hispanic Heritage Month with what appears to be a rather obvious choice, Alejandro González Iñárritu's Academy Award nominated international drama starring Brad Pitt and Cate Blanchett, "Babel". Director Iñárritu, writer Guillermo Arriaga, and cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto all hail from Mexico.

However, the film's composer, Gustavo Santaolalla, was born in El Palomar, Argentina and won the Academy Award in the "Best Original Score" category for "Babel". He also won the Academy Award in the same category the year before for the score of the controversial western "Brokeback Mountain", making him the only Hispanic to win two consecutive Oscars in the same category and only the eighth person to accomplish the feat overall.
