The feud: Babel director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu vs. Babel writer Guillermo Arriaga The accusation: Inarritu and Arriaga attacked each other for taking too much credit for Babel. Back story: The writer/director pair had collaborated for nine years, on films like 21 Grams and Amores Perros. Trash talking: "It's a shame that in your unjustified obsession to claim sole responsibility for the film, you seem not to recognize that movies are an art of deep collaboration," Inarritu and other members of the Babel team wrote in a letter to Chilango magazine.
