More of an Extended Music Video than a Movie, but what Music
28 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hecho en Mexico presents a heady mix of Mexican folk, pop, and rap traditions. It showcases many of Mexico's biggest stars, such as Gloria Trevi and Julieta Venegas, though they are not likely to be familiar to English-speaking audiences. The editing is brilliant as songs meld seamlessly from one artist to the next. The performances are packed with heart and wit. I keep watching the DVD over and over. The music is interspersed with discussion by various Mexican artists and intellectuals. These range from insightful to left-wing banalities, which are the film's only weakness. Whether the film can rightly be called a documentary is open to question. There is no theme or story to tell, just a stream of music. The performances are captured live in nonstudio settings. However, they are staged and not performed in front of large audiences. This is not meant as a criticism. If you want to see some of today's Mexico's best music, Hecho en Mexico is a good place to start.
