MOVIE REVIEW

Amidst the glamour of Chicago and the sheerness of The Hours, I finally found a 2002 film worth the coveted A+ grade. With terrific acting and a powerful, controversial story, El Crimen del Padre Amaro, the movie that took Mexico by storm, is one of the best films of the year. Full movie review »
