Films for class

What is neoliberalism / what happened to Mexican film because of it / what is transnational Mexican film like / what image(s) of Mexico and Mexicanness, of nation and self, does it construct?

I was going to start with Amores perros

We’ll see:

Amores perros**
Como agua para chocolate**
Danzón [I or we own it, but cannot be bought; is on YouTube]
El crimen del padre Amaro
Midaq Alley
Perfume de violetas
Principio y fin
Sexo, pudor y lágrimas
[Solo con tu pareja]**
Y tu mamá también**
