Hecho en México (2012)
Too lefty for me but the music is great.
Went to see it and as I thought this is a somehow hipster, lefty sort of intellectual production. Depicting the perpetual Mexican middle-class drama of identity crisis, are we indigenous? Spanish? what's to be Mexican? And so on and sod off. It portrays some of Mexico's cultural and musical diversity, but only and from the creator's point of view which at some point can be very partial. There's a constant juxtaposition of the rural/urban tribes trying to depict "the contradicting and complex reality of Mexico's society" a very *very* common place in Mexican contemporary cinema. The reflection goes around the fact that instead of actually trying to be better and live better, we Mexicans like to daydream about how awesome/awful we are and how everything bad that happens to us is someone else's fault and everything good is the result of God's or the virgin's blessings. *Yawn*. Music is great though.
