Güeros, la pelicula

Alonso Ruizpalacios has directed a great movie called Güeros. It’s like La Haine, one of my favorite movies, only transplanted into CDMX. Aside from the fun cinematography, there are numerous subtle digs at pop music, art cinema, and what it even means to be Mexican. Available on Netflix and highly recommended.

“Puto cine mexicano. They hire some beggars, shoot in black and white, then say they’re making art cinema.”
