"Mass manipulation" is a tough word, but in some cases it correctly applies. During the presidency of Luis Echeverría (1970-1976), a significantly major cinematographic freedom was given to the industry and censorship regarding sensitive sociopolitical questionings came to a stop. Felipe Cazals, Jorge Fons and Jaime Humberto Hermosillo were the men that raised from the ashes and spoke out loud. The role of Cazals was daring.
In what may be his (first?, second?) best film, government is confronted through eyes of hypocrisy and, indeed, manipulation. It is a brutal reflection about the weight of the social and political power of the Church in society, and about the strong use of religious and anticommunist ideologies in times of harshness and inner turmoil and confusion. But Cazals is intelligent. he never forgot about the rural heart. That is why he introduces us the town of San Miguel de Canoa in a faithful documentary style, and shows us his internal conflicts as well. Judging acts is very difficult when we do not consider what is behind the curtain, AND WE <b>ALMOST NEVER</b> SEE WHAT IS BEHIND THE CURTAIN!!!
Mexican docudrama about a group of guys on a hiking trip get beaten and some killed by a town of backwoods hicks lead by their priest. Based on true events that took place in 1968, too bad the action and acting didn't age too well. Really boring film.
LETTERBOX. Genial película sabe encontrar el balance entre la sátira, la denuncia y la tragedia. Es a la vez furiosa y humanista, con un rigor cinematográfico admirable. / Genial film finds balance between satire, denunciation, and tragedy. It is simultaneously angry and humanistic, with an admirable cinematic rigor.
Un clasico del cine mexicano que retrata con alta fidelidad las consecuencias de la manipulacion masiva y el mal menejo de la informacion aunados al analfabetismo que existe aun en muchas zonas del pais. Demasiado cruda para su tiempo y tambien algo tendenciosa. No obstante una muy buena pelicula.
Otra vez, como Mexico no hay dos!
Gran historia que narra la intolerancia de un México dominado por el autoritarismo y la ignorancia.
QuÃ© miedo de pelÃcula. EstÃ¡ muy buena pero quÃ© Ã±aÃ±aras...
Me gusto el estilo como de documental que tiene en parte, ademas de que siempre es tetrico ver que algo asi pasa en la realidad.
It is a VERY good movie. A true story that happened a long time ago in Mexico. Although it is a bit greusome it still makes it a great movie.
IncreÃble, todos la deben ver. Cazals tiene un estilo increÃble, influenciado por el cine de la nueva ola francesa.
