Greetings all,
=20
I'm a long-time lurker, first-time poster-love this listserv! My
smallish public library wants to add to our Spanish-language video
collection with an infusion of 20-25 Spanish-language DVD titles. We've
had no difficulty finding resources for critically-acclaimed titles, so
we already have a healthy representation of Bunuel, Almodovar, etc. We
also have a pretty good handle on titles that were widely released in
the United States (Amores Perros, Y Tu Mama Tambien, Like Water for
Chocolate, etc.)
=20
But what we really want now is to acquire some titles that might not
have been critically acclaimed, but were wildly popular in their country
of origin (and preferably, but not necessarily, Mexico). We're talking
the Mexican equivalent of Titanic, Moulin Rouge or Die Hard (and, not to
exclude TV titles, The Sopranos & Buffy the Vampire Slayer). Can anyone
suggest some titles or point us toward a resource? Thanks very much
