    1. I am very glad to hear that. And, I thought ‘Sin Nombre’ was very manipulative (I am just remembering your previous comments), but I like it because it is very bold and shockingly realistic. If you have not seen yet (probably you have), I strongly recommend ‘The Secret in their Eyes’. It is a great film.

        1. Yes, it won, and little wonder as it is a masterpiece of a kind. I think it delivers (and does so brilliantly) what a modern Hollywood thriller nowadays fails to: edge-of-your-seat, gripping, thought-provoking murder mystery with fab twists and turns, plus a ‘perfect’ ending – while, at the same time, being highly emotional and even ‘touching’ film. The result is very impressive.
