La Cara Oculta (2012)

"all at once a bizarre love triangle, an even more bizarre ghost story, and a mystery both personal and (mildly) political."

Curandero (2005)

"a hallucinatory vision of the Mexican 'underworld' where uncomfortable national realities... are remapped according to the psychedelic charts of Jodorowsky, and viewed through the distorting lens of genre. "
