from a friend....

I do not know if all the streaming titles available on Netflix in the U.S. are available in the new Latin service, so I'd be interested to see if you can watch these. Surely some of these would be of interest t...

Mayan topics:

Apocalypto - Mel Gibson's epic filmed in and around Vera Cruz, Mexico, with mostly real Mayans speaking Yucatec.

Cracking the Maya Code
Breaking the Maya Code
National Geographic: Dawn of the Maya - all four of these are excellent
Lost King of the Maya documentaries

Latin Titles:

The Other Conquest - A bit flawed, but a very intense Mexican production
about Tenochitlan and Aztec history. Interesting.

Sin Nombre - Outstanding, realistic story of illegal immigrants on the way to El
Norte and the trials they face before they even get to the U.S.

Secuestro Express -- The number one grossing film of all time in Venezuela.
Everything you always wanted to know about kidnapping
in Venezuela but were afraid to ask.

The Official Story - Argentinian masterpiece about the "Dirty War" in the
1970's. Won Best Foreign Film in 1986 at the Oscar's.

Che -- Benicio del Toro as everyone's favorite revolutionary.
4 hour epic from a leftist perspective.

Chevolution - Documentary about the famous iconic photo of Che.

Que Viva Mexico - An absolute gem of a film by one of the all time
great directors. Be sure and check this one out.

Motorcycle Diaries - Based on the diaries of Che about his motorcycle
trip across South America

Viva Cuba - Cuban production with excellent young actors.
Story of two youngsters on a family quest.
Be sure and have your hanky ready.

Dogs of War" -- set in Africa but mostly filmed in Belize, notably in Belize City.

Mega Piranha - Saved the best for last. Don't miss this one!!

We have Apocolypto and will be showing it soon at the Theater.
I also have Motocycle diaries but the quality sucks so I'm trying to get another copy.

I'm also working on getting Dogs of War and Mosquito Coast plus a Colombian Film called Maria Full Of Grace.

Any other suggestions post or pm me and I'll see what I can do.

It's always better to see it on the big screen.

Having just been to the movies while on vacation (saw J. Edgar) I have to admit it is good to watch on a big screen. But I can also confirm that Netflix streaming does work here if you have a VPN installed such as this one
