From: Olivia Bell [Email her]Cartel Land,
a no-holds-barred account of the Mexican border war on drugs and Sundance 2015
directing winner for best US documentary, plays in select theaters just in time for Independence Day. With a 95% critic approval rating from Rotten Tomatoes,
the question remains how did a pro-militia
, anti-Mexican drug cartel movie get nationwide distribution and heavy-hitting accolades?
Ah, yes, the main vigilantes in focus are Mexican locals fighting against the violent Knights Templar Cartel
and corrupt police who have made their once "peaceful" towns into a living nightmare.
Just like the recent Oscar-nominated anti-Islamic
only non-whites in their native lands can criticize tyrannical oppression and be applauded. White people who take a stand and do the same are simply considered ignorant and racist, especially if, like Donald Trump,
they're running for President.The reader works in the film industry.
