    The Soft Skin

    ★★★★★

    I tell people my favorite movie of all time is “The Soft Skin” and they’re rather surprised by it or confused since they either don’t know what the movie is or think liking this movie that much is inferior compared to the other works of director Francois Truffaut (which I also enjoy very much). 

    The Soft Skin for me felt like something out of this world. Something from another dimension perhaps. The way it builds up and the way it…

    If you've been living under a rock or just had never given it a thought; Christian Gonzalez's Mujeres De Medianoche (1990) is a remake of an old comedy movie from 1956 entitled “El Chismoso De La Ventana” (aka "The Window Gossip"). It took me a pretty long time to watch it considering it never got a home video release (at least to my knowledge) and TV airings of the movie are scarce. Finally though, I was able to watch the…

    Salvame! Una Luz En La Oscuridad

    ★★★★★

    In the mid 1990’s, Mexican actor & epic entrepreneur Roberto Palazuelos teamed up with Frontera Films to make an epic movie based on his volatile days. Drugs & alcohol were burying him into a destructive black hole, but eventually a light came through to help him get out and he was saved!

    Coca-Cola product placements, music by Pedro Moctezuma & Roberto Palazuelos being Roberto Palazuelos. This is an unforgettable experience! Check out my review of Salvame! Una Luz En La Oscuridad (1996) over at Trash-Mex!

    My 2nd all-time favorite slasher movie of the 80’s. 

    It’s so basic & predicable, but I have a lot of fun with this one every time I watch it. It has some funny kills and the music in it is so bad you’ll love to hate it. It’s also very aesthetically pleasing to me. It’s so early 1980’s and I’m a huge sucker for that era. Ugh.

    The year is 1991. You're in a dirty little dance hall somewhere in Mexico. Inside that dance hall, you see all these scrappy couples dancing the night away to cumbia songs. Ever wonder who these people are? What are their names? What do they do when they're not dancing? Do you really want to know? Well then, watch Ritmo, Traicion y Muerte: La Cumbia Asesina ( aka "Rhythm, Betrayal & Death: The Killer Cumbia") to find out!

    In the opening of…
