Carl J. Mora, who grew up attending Spanish-language films, researched this book in Mexico City and in the UCLA Film Archive. He is the co-translator of The Mexican Cinema: Interviews with Thirteen Directors and the author of articles on Mexican and Spanish films.Review:
"Carl J. Mora's new study of Mexican Cinema is a very useful addition to our knowledge of Third World cinema." -- Roy Armes, Films and Filming
"Essential reading for all those interested in contemporary cinema or the social and cultural history of twentieth-century Mexico. . . . [Mexican Cinema] is based on an excellent combination of research materials and methods, primary and secondary sources, interviews, and, most important, the screening of an impressive number of films." -- David R. Maciel, Hispanic American Historical Review
"Mora's book is obviously the fruit of remarkable dedication and patience the work of many years, including what must have been literally thousands of hours in screening rooms. The result, for us, is a new window on Mexico, a country so many Americans like to think they know. That, indeed, is no small contribution." -- Mark Falcoff, The New Criterion
"The author's extensive research and broad background allow him to situate his discussion of Mexico's movie industry within the context of that nation's changing socioeconomic and political situation." -- Dennis West, Cineaste
