Y Tu Mamá También

I recently watched Alfonso Cuarón’s 2001 film Y Tu Mamá También and was blown away by its genius. It presents itself as coming-of-age road trip movie, yet says so much about Mexico, adolescence, and life itself in very nuanced ways. Through masterful cinematographic techniques, the film paints a picture of Mexican society by capturing honest and oftentimes bleak realities of rural areas in the background of the film, while the main characters operate in their own insulated sphere of society. I highly recommend this movie. Here’s a link to a review: http://www.liveforfilm.com/2016/12/12/review-y-tu-mama-tambien-a-display-of-cinematic-talent-at-its-highest/ .
