Today at the Atlanta 25th Annual Latin American Film Festival



October 30, 2010, 8 p.m.
An ambulance-chasing lawyer named Sosa (Ricardo Darín) and a twenty-something emergency room doctor, Luján (Martina Gusman), meet among the twisted carnage of a car crash. He’s caught up in shady insurance schemes but anxious to find a way to come clean; she’s ambitious and capable, but takes the edge off of sleep deprivation and adrenaline jitters with a regular fix. In Pablo Trapero‘s electrifying thriller neither conscience nor love comes without cost, and corruption casts an omnipresent shadow. Upon its debut at the 2010 Cannes Film Festival, Twitch’s Todd Brown wrote, ”Trapero serves notice here that he is one of the very best (more…)

Today at the Atlanta 25th Annual Latin American Film Festival

There, killing time before he tries crossing again, he finds a job helping out at a bodega and becomes involved with both its owner and her friend, two women left behind by men like Andres. ”What may start out as a message movie . . .

Film festival shows contrasts of Mexico’s drug war


Mexican director Alejandro Inarritu, left, and Spanish actor Javier Bardem pose for photographers at the Morelia International Film Festival in Morelia, Mexico, Saturday Oct. 16, 2010.

From afar it seems like Baghdad: car bombs, beheadings and corrupt politicians.
Up close, Mexico remains magical and picturesque in parts, feeling oddly safe even in the hardest-fought territories of the drug war.
The 8th annual International Film Festival opened Saturday in the drug-plagued state of Michoacan to its largest turnout ever, drawing the contrast that defines Mexico today.
Only blocks from the site where a 2008 grenade attack killed eight people, hundreds lined the red carpet to squeal at one of Hollywood’s leading men, Oscar-winning Spanish actor Javier Bardem. Unlike the Jonas Brothers in the drug-war-ravaged city of Monterrey, no one canceled – organizers say – for a festival that also features Hollywood blockbuster director Robert Rodriguez and Monty Python funnyman-turned-director Terry Gilliam.
“I’m waiting to see the bad side of Morelia,” Gilliam told reporters Sunday. “Since I’ve been in Morelia, I’ve been blown away by the architecture. It’s such a beautiful place.”
Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, whose film “Biutiful” starring Bardem opened the festival, acknowledged to a full auditorium in cocktail attire that his homeland is seeing a difficult time.
He told The Associated Press on Sunday that violence in Mexico appears to be out control. But culture and education are very powerful weapons in the war against it.
“These are very powerful acts of resistance. I think the seed or the root of what we’re experiencing is a (more…)
