My Favorite Movies: Y TU MAMA TAMBIEN

Director: Alfonso Cuaron
Year: 2001

Alfonso Cuaron's Y Tu Mama Tambien is his love letter to his native Mexico, and it also happens to be a raunchy road flick. I remember a few years back, my former boss (a septuagenarian Hispanic guy) came to the office and told me that his daughter lent him the DVD and he thought it was "porno!" and "the language they used!" Whatever. Can't think of a better buddy movie with an excellent script, great camerawork, and memorable performances especially from Gael Garcia Bernal and Maribel Verdu (also of Belle Epoque and Pan's Labyrinth fame).
