Latin America is known for producing tantalizing and raw films. Here is a list of my favorite movies about the region. They manage to capture the reality of the region while adding the cultural spark that makes Latin America unique in the eyes of the world:
1. Sin Nombre
"An amazing and unflinching look at illegal immigration to the United States and the violent world of MS-13."
2. Maria Full of Grace "Highly acclaimed film about a beautiful Colombian drug mule."
3. Motorcycle Diaries
"This takes the concept of a road trip movie in an enitrely different direction."
4. City of Gods
"There is not enough praid possible for this film. A masterwork in every regard."
5. The Secret in Their Eyes
"One of the best films I've ever seen, intense, insightful and thought provoking"
