100 best Iberoamerican movies of all times


Via Alejandro, I received this list of the 100 best Iberoamerican movies of all times according to a poll organized by NOTICINE.

I haven’t seen most of them. Those movies that I have seen have been usually pretty good or excellent, with a few overrated ones here and there (Y Tu Mamá También or El Crimén del Padre Amaro spring to my mind). My all-time favorite Mexican movie is in the list, of course: El Callejón de los Milagros – based on a novel by a Nobel price Egyptian writer, with a young and not yet internationally known Salma Hayek playing a prostitute, a recurrent dominoes theme, and a shocking bathroom scene. Some other films I saw a long time ago so I don’t even remember them that well.

I have made bold the movies I’ve seen. Feel free to post some recommendations in the comments. I expect Eva to re-publish the list shortly except with many more entries made bold and more insightful comments.
