My fellow latino Tarantino fans...

Post by Navajas » Mon Feb 12, 2007 4:47 am

Im half Mexican so Im a big fan of Latin American cinema... However when I post topics about latino movies in other forum sections no one ever replies to them... Its because most people in this forum are interested in European and Asian cinema when it comes to foreign cinema... Im half arab half Mexican, grew up in the middle east and currently livin in Canada... So only I speak a little Spanish... My favorite latino directors are Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Alfonso Cuaron, Guillermo del Toro, Fernando Meirelles, Walter Salles and to some extent Carlos Reygadas... The best movies of 2006 where all by Mexican directors, Babel, Children of Men and Pan's Labyrinth... Classics like Amores Perros, City of God, Y Tu Mama Tambien and Motorcycle Diaries prove that the latinos are taking over the cinema world right now... Gael Garcia Bernal is the most talented actor out there... He never starred in a bad movie and all his movies have something unique or controversial about them... He worked with some of the best directors out there, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, Alfonso Cuaron, Walter Salles, Michael Gondry (France) and the great Pedro Almodovar (Spain)... Feel free to discuss any latino movie in this post...

Latino movies by my favourite directors:
Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu (Mexico): Amores Perros
Alfonso Cuaron (Mexico): Solo Con Tu Pareja, Y Tu Mama Tambien
Guillermo Del Toro (Mexico): Cronos, The Devil's Backbone, Pan's Labyrinth
Carlos Reygadas (Mexico): Japon, Battle in Heaven
Fernando Meirelles (Brazil): City of God, City of Men
Walter Salles (Brazil): Behind the Sun, Central Station, Motorcycle Diaries

Latino movies starring Gael Garcia Bernal:
Amores Perros
Y Tu Mama Tambien
The Motorcycle Diaries
The Crime of Padre Amaro (Mexico)
Private Lives (Argentina)


Various other successful Latino movies:
Like Water For Chocolate (Mexico)
Sex, Shame and Tears (Mexico)
Duck Season (Mexico)
Lower City (Brazil) "Y'all have to watch this"
Nine Queens (Argentina)
Cronicas (Equador)
Maria Full of Grace (Colombia)

What other Latino movies are worth watchin? If you liked the idea of this forum I could start a similar Spanish cinema thread which Im also a big fan of... Btw sorry I don't speak Spanish ;)...

When a movie is filmed in Mexico, by a Mexican director, with Mexican actors, speaking Spanish THEN ITS MEXICAN!!!

Yes, even if its payed with US money. That shouldn't matter...
We don't know his motivation, nor his love-affair. All we know is that he's a hired-assasin ready to kick some butt.

He's called:

The "BICYCLE GUY"

When justice is done, he goes on...

Its a reason to be angry? be cool men! shot!  Mexico, doesnt pay or give money to those directors, maybe with Amores Perros, or Y tu Mama  Tambien, but Bbel was filmed In Japan, US, Marruecos ( i dont know the english name, sorry my bad) and Mexico, BUT the money comes from US.

Do you tough, the president call someone of the directors like, Alfonso Cuaron or, "El negro" Iñarritu and he told them: " Hey buddys, congratulations for ya movies, you must be felt prouds by your jobs, yeah, one point more for Mexico!!" Hell no!! The gobernent doesnt care shoot that, they trimmed the budget in culture and but in cinema, so these directors got that to go or to US or  Europe. its sad, really sad.
Now, i must to recognize the Mexicans job, yes, i dont doub that, really, i felt proud whe i saw that, but, that's the reality.

Actually the 3 Amigos (Del Toro, Inarritu, Cuaron) have formed a company called Tequila Gang to help Mexican film makers and finance them... Walter Salles is doing the same thing in Brazil...
