More likely than not, any list of the best movies of all time will end up slighting someone. Let alone the best movies from a tradition as rich and diverse as the Latin cinematic one. But the Latin Times is taking a stab at it anyway -- any list with directors like Alejandro Jodorowsky, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Luis Buñuel and Alfonso Cuarón and stars like Silvia Pinal, Ricardo Darín, Salma Hayek, Diego Luna and Gael García Bernal will just as inevitably trigger some memories and spark some controversy.
This list encompasses the 25 movies that the editors of Latin Times consider the essential pieces of cinema made in Latin America, from Mexico to Brazil. However, if you don't find some titles like Guillermo Del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth, don't take it personal, the list is based on countries of origin. Since Labyrinth and The Devil's Backbone were made in Spain with Spanish money, they are not featured in the list, but movies like "El Topo" from a Chilean director and "Viridiana" from a Spaniard filmmaker made in Mexico, are included.
To see the list, just scroll on the top right of the first image above. We hope you have a cinematic revelation.
