Fun Size Review: Que Viva Mexico! (1932/1979)

Sergei Eisenstein’s jaunt into Mexico on Upton Sinclair’s dime yielded reel after reel of footage but due to politics and misfortune, he was unable to edit it together before his death.

This is the version released in 1979 and it’s not perfect but the striking images and forceful vignettes make for an intriguing picture.

Note: The film was shot silent but the 1979 version has vocal narration in place of intertitles.

How does it end? Hover or tap below for a spoiler.

The film is a series of vignettes so there is no real end but you can bet money on a good portion of the cast dying.

If it were a dessert it would be: Cookie Dough Truffles. Half-baked but delicious.

Availability: Released on DVD.
