  2. If you must watch in English, I recommend "Nacho Libre." Given that its a funny movie, it is also masterful satire of real Mexican small town culture in the 70’s and 80’s. But if you want to watch the best of Mexican cinema, you should watch in Spanish with subtitles, some of the best recent titles would be "Chronos," a vampire story. "La Ley de Herodes" a satire of political corruption. If you can find them, try to find some movies from the 70’s with subtitles, this was Mexico’s art film era, some titles that stand out are "Calzonzin Inspector" a satire of social class, "El gran perro muerto" a satire of government inaction. "Un año sin peste" a pandemic drama.

    Mexican American movies tend to reflect wider culture, but some do stand out, my favorites would be "Bound by honor" and "American me" both are considered the "godfather" series for Mexican Americans.

  3. "El Norte" (1983). But to understand any culture you must go to the source.

    For Mexico and Mexicans, in Spanish, try "El Callejón de los Milagros" and "La ley de Herodes".

    Mexican-Americans are trying to create their own identity, from El Pachuco to El Cholo. The work of Victor Villasenor might not have made it into the movies yet.
