Dir. Gerardo Naranjo (2011).
An aspiring beauty queen becomes an unwitting pawn in the international drug trade, as well as a metaphor for her nation. Gerardo Naranjo’s third feature is at once an example of virtuoso action filmmaking, an impassioned response to the collapse of civil order in northern Mexico, and a horrific Alice in Wonderland.
