APGW and I saw the wonderful movie, Rudo y Cursi this weekend. The film, a funny tale about brotherhood, love and the trappings of success was produced by Cha Cha Cha, the brainchild of Mexican directors Alfonso Cuarón, Guillermo del Toro and Alejandro González Iñárritu. Think Spielberg, Scorsese and Sam Mendes collaborating on something meaningful.

It's a sad commentary, however, that the film is showing at just three theaters between Miami and Jupiter. I guess its hard for independent films to break the collective chokehold that Tom Hanks, Ben Stiller and the Wayans have on theater chains across our region. Until then, we'll have to wait on killer indies like the riveting Tyson, which is playing in, eh, "selected cities." Cities with a pulse. Until then, its Dance Flick for South Floridians. NetFlix anyone?
