He’s a specialist on Mexican thematic, such as ‘Selena, A time of destiny, My Family’, and his best movie: ‘The North. This film will make you think twice about the product buy or make you food for the reason of long hours in jobs and low wages.
Slightly worse than the original
An American remake of the Mexican film “El Traspatio”, the film is LOOSELY (can’t emphasize that enough) the case of Abdel Sharif and the subsequent mass graves found in the desert surrounding Ciudad Juarez. While “El Traspatio” bases its story through the eyes of protagonists in connecting stories, Bordertown is just a formulaic, linear plot based around a name-brand actress, Jennifer Lopez. Sadly, her role as a white American reporter with a “hidden secret” (she’s really Mexican…SHHHHHH!) is just too laughable to be taken seriously (the director and Jennifer apparently believe making her wear a few hair-clips magically transforms her into a maquiladora worker). So, the original was bad…and this is slightly worse.
