Three young women from disparate backgrounds have one thing in common: They are bombarded daily by a culture that is saturated with sex -- from rap lyrics to the fashion industry to cyberporn. Winnifred, 12, a precocious New York City girl on the cusp of adulthood, wears fish-net stockings and low-cut tops, striving to emulate her musical idol, Lady Gaga. Laura, a 22-year-old kindergarten teacher from Alexandria, Va., saves her money for vaginal plastic surgery, convinced reducing the size of her labia will change her life.
Nichole, 32, of Clearwater, Fla., was once Nikita Kash, a stripper and pole dancer, but now, all she wants is to have a baby with the husband she met in the porn business. Perhaps they do not represent typical American youth, but they all feel the pressure to be beautiful and to be sexy.
All three stories are intertwined in "Sexy Baby," an award-winning documentary about how technology and pornography are shaping the sexual identity of young girls. With Facebook, smart phones and instant access to the Internet, a generation of children is getting their sex education from online porn.
The film, a first from former Miami Herald journalists Ronna Gradus and Jill Bauer, opens Oct. The idea for the film began when Gradus, a photographer, was shooting a story on college bars and she noticed even the mainstream ones had stripper poles.
In the film, viewers watch the maturation of Winnifred, the oldest of the three girls of Jeni and Ken.
Winnifred's 4-year-old sister Myrtle follows in her older sister's footsteps, lip syncing to Britney Spears and writhing her little body on the floor. Their mother Jeni is part-amused, part-horrified raising her old-beyond-their-years daughters. The young men who influence women like Laura have an unrealistic picture of what is normal, according to the film makers.
Laura never hesitated to participate in the film, even allowing them to film vaginal surgery, according to the directors. Because of their own age differences, Bauer and Gradus say their own lives are witness to the culture change. Even Nichole, the jaded stripper, who with her husband recruits talent for the industry, laments the prevalence of Internet porn.
The directors were happily surprised by the positive reaction to their documentary, especially from Winnifred's mother Jeni, who exposed her family to intrusive cameras. Le professionnalisme et la courtoisie de notre staff toujours A  votre disposition sont nos plus. Homosexuality has always been a taboo topic in Latin America, so this cuban gem is especially important for how sincere and authentic it is. A stupendous satire made after the Cuban revolution, Death of a Bureaucrat was the poetic vengeance of the writer and director against the post-revolutionary bureaucracy. Often cited as one of the best films of the first decade of the new millennium, And Your Mother Too represented the return of Alfonso Cuaron to Mexico after two films in Hollywood. Pixote shook a few people when it came out, a raw and powerful portrayal of poor youth in Brazil. One of the very best satires ever made anywhere, Herod’s Law concerns a mild mannered, mediocre politician in charge of a dumpster, who is made the mayor of a small town after the previous mayor is decapitated. A year and one month after the release of the film in the Acapulco Film Festival in Mexico, Vicente Fox Quesada assumed power as the first president in 71 years that didn’t come from PRI. Based on the novel “The Question in Their Eyes”, the film is about a retired legal counselor who starts writing a novel looking for closure on the cases that he never managed to crack and love he never managed to get back. Bunuel’s arguably greatest Mexican masterpiece is one of the bleakest and most enduring portrayals of troubled youth ever filmed. Don?t know your knowings about Bunuel?s biography or Spain?s history, but after he left Mexico he went back to spain to film a unique movie during the dictatorship, that became a huge success until the Vatican sent a terrible communication complaining about it and then they tried to destroy every copy. About Pan?s labyrinth, the capital involved was strictly spanish, as much as devil?s backbone.

Yes, Guillermo is part right, Viridiana, officially, is from Spain regardless that the producer Gustavo Alatriste, actress Silvia Pinal and the director Luis Bunuel (he took the Mexican citizenship and died Mexican) are Mexicans. The nationality or origin from a Movie is usually dictated by where the money comes from and where the main crew is from. Portrait of Maria also won the Palme d’Or, Viridiana is NOT the only Mexican film to won that award. My only criticism to this list is the lack of coherence with the films’ basic information.
Other lists on this website are awesome but this one includes not only one but TWO pieces of dreck by the pompous pseudo poetic Eliseo Subiela.
Good list, I will add some Leopoldo Torre Nilson, Leonardo Favio, Luis Alcoriza, Miguel Littin, Raul Ruiz, Nelson Pereira Dos Santos, Anselmo Duarte, Lucrecia Martel, Lisandro Alonso, Humberto Solas. Bolivian movies don’t appear, Jorge Sanjines movies are excellent, you should check them out.
La Nana and No are the two recent Chilean movies that broke through internationally but Machuca and Nostalgia for the Light are both superior works, both artistically and as documents of Chilean life. Decent, fearless comedy is alive and well here, as Bridesmaids proves itself to be so much more than a 'chick-flick'.
Christopher Plummer quite rightly bagged an Academy Award for his riveting performance in this bittersweet but ultimately happy drama, a semi-autobiographical work from the wonderful Mike Mills (Thumbsucker). Filming for three years, they heard from tweens, college students and parents who feel a sense of confusion in a world where sex means power. Anthony and Ruth Bader Ginsberg," she says confidently, acting out her own play in a middle-school theater group.
Her parents, who are separated, ground Winnifred eight times in six months for abusing her computer privileges. And what better way to celebrate than to engage in one of Hollywood’s (and Hollywood is America, no?) favorite pastimes – blowing iconic American landmarks to smithereens! It is the story of a young homosexual intellectual who falls in love with a heterosexual communist filled with prejudice and indoctrinated ideas. It’s a classic Mexican film, often criticized for trying too hard to relate to Hollywood productions.
A Cuban worker dies and is buried with his union card, item needed by his widows to get her pension.
It’s the story of two teenage boys who embark on a road trip with an attractive older woman, and what they learn along the way.
It’s the story of Pixote, a 10-year-old boy used by gangs for mugging and drug transport, who is caught by the police and sent into a juvenile reformatory. He arrives with good intentions, but slowly falls into corruption with great help from the few local leaders, and embodies the corruption and violence that reigned in Mexico during the long decades in which the supposedly moderate PRI remained in power.
It won the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar, making Argentina the first Latin American country to win the prize twice.
After their economic growth and their status as a titan of Latin America was supposedly cemented, the gang problems and the favelas didn’t seem to get that much better to their inhabitants. It won Bunuel the best director Award at Cannes and it has been named “Memory of the World” by the UNESCO. He fell in love with cinema, and even though he usually gets films a few weeks late to be completely bias free (especially Oscar front runners) and his local cinemas don’t show that much arthouse, he still thinks that going to the theater and seeing a good movie is the most magical experience there is.
Even more, Viridiana?s director was spanish, so it has nothing to do with Mexico, nor Latin America. Of course, some of then had been sent out of Spain, (it won in Cannes) so the film survived.
The director is mexican, but the movie is spanish, as much as the mexican Bunuel?s movies aren?t spanish movies. The producer gave Buenuel the chance to film in Spain, and decide to associate with the spanish company Films 59.

That is why most Bunuel films are considered Mexican, even if he was Spanish born and raised. But latinamerica is seen as an homogeneous block for anglosaxon media and they never fail to show that short viewed perspective they have. Although it may not be included in the best of all times lists, it’s one of the best in my book!
I would add Whisky ( Pablo Stoll y Juan Pablo Rebella, Uruguay) and El Aura (Fabian Bielinsky, Argentina) and maybe, Valparaiso, mi amor (Aldo Francia, Chile). She primps for a seductive photo shoot with her girlfriend Olivia, later posting the images online. It won a Special Jury Prize in Canne and was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.
About the relationship between poor peasant, Macario, and Death, the film was nominated for the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film. It won the award for best screenplay in the Venice Film Festival and was nominated for the Best Original Screenplay Oscar.
Filmmakers like Spike Lee and Harmony Korine have cited it as one of their favorite films, and Roger Ebert considered it a classic. The film stars Jodorosky himself as El Topo, a gunman travelling through a desert with his son.
City of God is a painfully real recreation of life in favelas (Most of the cast are actually from favelas, and some from the actual “City of God”) as seen from the eyes of two boys growing up there, and of the different paths in life they tale. It’s the story of a group of juvenile delinquents in the slums of Mexico City, and how their morals slowly decay. Mexico, country where Bunuel made some of his best, wasn?t involved specifically in this movie. First, I purpose you to read about the UNINCI and how they were able to produce a film like that one under Franco?s dictatorship (and others in the same way from Berlanga and other authors, some of them wining in Cannes, not just Viridiana).
It helps understand the significance and importance of a movie when we can put in in its historical and cultural context. Two Oscars were Mexican that night: (art direction and cinematography) and only one was Spanish (make up). The theme of friendship, teamwork and perseverance is at the core of this all-American movie. It is a surreal and violent experience, with outbursts that have been described as “exploitative” by some. Fernando Meirelles was nominated for Best Director for this movie, and it was also nominated for Adapted Screenplay, Cinematography and Editing. It is a realistic and potent piece of filmmaking that stays with you long after you watch it.
Biutiful, You’re Missing the Point with the Immortal Cantinflas, What credentials do you have to in Film History? It was quite controversial when it first was released, and had it not been championed by people like John Lennon (Who later funded Jodorowsky’s next film, “The Holy Mountain”) it would probably have struggled more to find an audience.
I’m sure I can come up with others from other countries if I give it some more thought, but the list is lacking more spread internationally across Latin America. Plus, we?re talking about a non-capitalist economy, despite the foreign budget contributions, not the nowadays idea of a co-production.
