Our Favorite Movies Set in Mexico

With Cinco de Mayo coming up this Sunday, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on our favorites movies shot in the great country of Mexico.

Although Hollywood dominates the movie landscape, our neighbors South of the border have also been responsible for some of the most groundbreaking cinema of recent memory.

Whether it is an American director who has chosen the country as a proper location, or a native Mexican director sharing his or her vision with the world, you can always count on some high entertainment coming out of films shot in the country.

Check out today’s gallery for a look at some of our favorites movies set in Mexico.
