Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Sin Nombre (2009)

Sayra: Back home my friend Clarissa made me see this crazy neighbor Doña Eleanor, you know... like witchcraft? She smoked this puro, then told me with her freaky voice that I'd make it to the U.S. but not in God's hand... perhaps in the Devil's.

If you've never seen Cary Fukunaga's tremendous directing debut -- which came out ten years ago today! -- I really recommend you seek it out right this second. It is still the best thing he's done, and I say that as a great big fan of his Jane Eyre. (Sin Nombre was my lucky 13th favorite film of 2009 -- read my original review right here.) I wonder if Cary looks at the past decade as he preps to film the new James Bond movie, sipping martinis with Daniel Craig, and is like... what the fuck? I know I sure would be!
