“La Dictadura Perfecta”… or art imitates life?

23 August 2014

For some reason, Televisa is rather reluctant to even allow advertising for the Luis Estrada’s political drama, and is doing everything within its considerable power to prevent its showing at Mexican theaters.

I can’t imagine why a film about a television network being paid to remake the image of a mediocre state governor — said state governor’s relationship with one of the network’s female telenovela stars being of use to his image makeover — would upset the network.

    Now that is a piece of art making that I find most interesting, especially since it brings the oligarchs out of hiding and illustrates the pageantry of Mexican democracy, as opposed to the real thing.
