Michael & All,

Midwest Tape offers a browse function on its website that allows you to
limit by language (such as Spanish) or country (such as Mexican Cinema). We
have a strong demand for Mexican titles here, and I have found this function
to be quite helpful in finding titles. Also, if I have trouble with the
site, they are always helpful when I call them with questions on narrowing
my search.

I hope that helps!

Subject: [Videolib] Popular Spanish-language DVDs

Greetings all,

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.)

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

Michael Logan
