Baja California

Tijuana's one of the major Mexican destinations to lose (and re-discover) yourself. And since it stands just a stone's throw across the border, Tijuana-set movies are also about the road trip that lead into the city. Case in point: Losin' It, an early Curtis Hanson-directed movie, starring Tom Cruise as part of a pack of boys driving south for some wild nights down Mexico way.

But peel away Tijuana's sun-dried gloss and you can find some dark stories, like in Robert Altman's The Long Goodbye, Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu's Babel, and Steven Soderbergh's Traffic.
