Feature content is imminent . . .

I wanted to pop in and let you know a little bit about our feature series for September. While it's clearly labeled as "New Mexican Cinema" in the sidebar, it's important to define that a little more clearly so you can understand the angle we're going to be taking.

In the past 20 years, filmmaking in Mexico has undergone a renaissance that's commonly known as Nuevo Cine Mexicano. We're going to focus our feature series on the work of the "Three Amigos:" Alfonso Cuaron, Guillermo del Toro, and Alejandro González Iñárritu. Each member of this triad of friends and collaborators has become a major international director, with a reach far beyond his home country.

In the end, the testament to any filmmaker is in his/her work, not in any number of words that we might pen on the subject. It's our hope that you not only enjoy the series but are, most importantly, inspired to watch their films.

Ah, I knew something was up on here.

My favorite of the three is Del Toro, he's a such an erudite and funny man.
