Review: The Curse of La Llorona

by Tony Ruggio

Latino audiences are theleading demofor moviegoing so Hollywood ignores them at their own peril.Cynical though it is,somebody at Warner Bros said "no mas"and rangJames Wanto add one more wrinkle to his ever-expandingConjuringuniverse.

Serving as producer,Wan's fingerprints are everywhere.From swooping dollies and immaculate crane work,to an early scene of kids frolicking to 70's tunes,La Lloronaoften flatters the original with homage.The simple foreboding of a dark corner in the room or a hazy reflection in the mirror,it's all there and it works for the most part...

Oscar Trivia with the 91st Annual Academy Awards now a wrap

Now that the big show has ended let's talk trivia.Please do share any cool things you noticed in the comments.


• With Alfonso Cuarón's win we are reminded that Mexico iscompletelydominant for Best Director prizes in Hollywood of late.Five of the past six winners have been Mexican directors (Damien Chazelle forLa La Landbeing the lone non-Mexican winning).The US is really lagging,and not behind Mexico -- in the ten past ceremonies only two American-born directors have won: Chazelle and Kathryn Bigelow forThe Hurt Locker

Alfonso Cuarón is the first and ONLY director to win for directing a foreign-language film.Some trivia listings suggest he's the second after Michel Hanavicius forThe Artistbut that was a silent film,so language isn't relevant...

Blueprints: "Coco"

Feliz Día de los Muertos!To celebrate,Jorgelooks at how the script for Disney's "Coco"mixes two languages the same way the movie interconnects cultures.

I've written a couple of pieces in this site before aboutCoco.It was an extremely intimate and touching experience to be able to see my native culture represented to accurately and lovingly.It is a movie that perfectly captures the spirit of Mexicanism,of our fragile and ever-present relationship with death,family,and tradition.

I saw the movie twice in theaters: once in its original English,and once in its Spanish dub.While I consider the dub to be a better version (but that perhaps has to do with the way I've always experienced animated films),the English one made me consider a new aspect of the film: the way it handled Spanish.It's a movie explicitly set in a different country;one where a different language is spoken (unlike say,Brave).How can the script incorporate this essential cultural element without making it seem unauthentic?It turns out,they do itmuy bien.
