Miss Bala (2011)

Directed by: Gerardo Naranjo
Country: Mexico

Plot: The story of a young woman clinging on to her dream to become a beauty contest queen in a Mexico dominated by organized crime.
Quick comment: Reveals a smart plot within a clumsy style, where lots of betrayals take place, involving police, government and drug cartels. The title of the movie was inspired in a famous Mexican pageant named “Miss Baja California” which is a dream for many girls. The movie shows how easy it is for any innocent person to be tangled in the schemes of the corrupted mexican system. It's only a matter of being in the wrong place at wrong time.
