Si bien esta no es una lista de directores, sí una que pretende ser representativa. Si permitiera repetir directores en la presente, probablemente se hallaría plagada de buñueles, fernández, de fuentes, rodríguez, galindos y otros clásicos, que, aunque lo merezcan, saldrían sobrando para plasmar un escenario de diversidad y pluralidad en la cinematografía mexicana.
The Perfect Vagina (2008)
The title of this documentary tries to sell you the film like something other than what it really is: a 50 minutes motivational episode
Beyond the fascinating that may be this issue, the presenter shows a highly biased and closed-approach, at times even somewhat alarmist and ethnocentric. If a cosmetic operation disturbs her, then what would she think about some things done for centuries by hundreds of African, pacific islands and native American cultures to look more attractive to their peers? Without going too far in the Americas circumcision is still practiced in most newborn males. Each culture has its own eccentricities, and as a human race this is not the first time we maim ourselves in pursuit of beauty or the simple of normalcy, to stop being-identified and judged. Or to honor certain cultural contracts. Or for mere whim.
Laissez faire et laissez passer, le monde va de lui même.
Even with all the documentary can bring you some views of the execution of such operations and the diversity of the female genital organs.
Del olvido al no me acuerdo (1999)
Superb... but not for everybody
It is not too much to appreciate in this movie for them whom do not have deep knowledge about the biography of the brilliant Mexican writer: Juan Rulfo.
And does not help in anything the non-orthodox decision of not introducing/displaying the names of the interviewed people, avoiding therefore the relation that each of these kept with Juan. Saving this point, which is in fact the central plot of the film (recollections of the people who lived with this author), the context is wonderful: beautiful landscapes, the memories and forgetfulnesses of a country that Mexican people have let go but at the same time it stay with them, and great senile humor and popular wisdom of personages of a peculiar (but in some way also a representative) Mexican little town.
To only add, here death plays an important role, like indeed is that ingrained idiosyncrasy which beats in Mexican people veins and nevertheless modernity has kill it (but not buried).
