Film Review: 'Amores Perros'
'Amores Perros' is the debut feature of Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu. Translating roughly as 'Love's A Bitch', it's the tale of illegal dogfighting in Mexico City.

Panellists Eamon Sweeney, Mary O'Sullivan and Gerry Godley discuss 'Amores Perros'

Certainly his last album 'Time Out Of Mind' is up there with the very best of his work and that never-ending world tour still goes on and on. As the genuine voice of the 60s, it does seem hard to imagine that Dylan is now 60 himself.
