Happy Cinco de Mayo! Tour Mexico Through the Movies!
Another year, another Cinco de Mayo celebrating Mexican pride and heritage. Some of our most beloved films have come from or are set in our neighboring country, so we're re-posting one of our favorite features we've done: the cinematic tour of Mexico. By clicking on the green-highlighted states below, you'll get a quick primer on movies set in that state. It's time rediscover your favorite movies set south of the border! Let's start in the Federal District. Here you'll find Mexico City, the country's capital and its most vital source for arts, culture, and economy. Though it probably benefited little from Man on Fire being set there. The film starred Denzel Washington as an ex-CIA agent determined to save a young kidnapped girl (Dakota Fanning), focusing on Mexico City's criminal gangs, gritty architecture, and the fiery explosions that regularly occur there.
