Timely, with the possibility of a hard core leftist getting elected president of Mexico, this keeps our eyes on the country and it's problems:

Sicario: Day of the Soldado screenwriter Taylor Sheridan, who started out as an actor (Sons of Anarchy), has emerged as a true Hollywood rarity. Not only has he written some of the best movies of the last few years — Sicario (2015), Hell or High Water (2016), Wind River (2017) — he is single-handedly keeping hope alive for the intelligent, character-driven, mid-budget action drama; the kind of noir that made the ’70’s so special.

Better still, the Texas-born Sheridan gets us, and by “us,” I mean people who live a hundred miles from the coasts. Don’t confuse that sentiment with some sort of sloppy, patronizing view of “flyover country.” The Oscar-nominee respects us enough to tell it straight: we are good people, some of us are great, and we are certainly the ones who do most of the fighting and dying for this country — too many of us, though, like our drugs, and way too many of us like our shopping malls.

Most of all there is the double-edged sword of our rugged individualism. While our refusal to be a squeaky wheel is certainly a virtue, it also allowed floods of illegal aliens, corrupt corporatism, and the nuke of globalism to catch us unaware.

Three years ago, Sicario was the unicorn movie lovers dream of. That one-of-a-kind feeling of falling in love with something totally unexpected; the perfect storm of a crackerjack script, Denis Villeneuve’s brilliantly original direction, otherworld cinematography by Roger Deakins, and an Oscar-nominated score courtesy of Jóhann Jóhannsson (who died unexpectedly in February at 48).

I enjoyed the first one. I'll buy this one for $5 someday just before it's included with Prime or Netflix.

There's a documentary on Amazon Prime named Cartel Land (2015). About the cartels, the corruption, and people on both sides of the border deciding to do something about it because their governments weren't bothering too much.

I highly recommend.
