msmichel's rating of the film Miss Bala

Fascinating on target picture from director Naranjo (Drama/Mex) looking at the state of modern Mexico's lawlessness and moral bankruptcy. A young girl with visions of a beauty queen life inadverantly finds herself drawn into the struggle between drug runners, corrupt police, the dea and the military machine as she becomes a pawn to all. Young Sigman is a natural talent here and we share her journey intimately. Aces.
