Desierto was made in 2015 and released in US and India in 2016.
This film could certainly be Donald Trump’s all time favourite movie. Why?
An American racist man takes law in his hands by trying to hunt down every single mexican immigrant he sees. mv5bmje0mtmxmtewm15bml5banbnxkftztgwmde4nzq1nze-_v1_ql50_sy1000_cr006661000_al_

But unlike the current turn of events, here he doesn’t succeed. But only after causing a lot of damage. I had lots of expectations from this film because it’s co-written and directed by Jonás Cuarón, son of Alfonso Cuarón. And, boy, it wasn’t a disappointing experience at all.

I love these thrillers with cat and mouse chases. Remember how I was raving about Don’t BreatheThis one had the same vibes.

There also were long scenic shots of neverending barren lands – signifying the lack of hope. Long, tedious chase sequences bringing forth a greater message underlining the age-old conflict of Mexican immigrants putting everything at risk by crossing illegally, to make a good life for themselves and their families back home.

The last 20 mins were a little draggy but the first 40 mins were so gripping that they make up for it.

That well-trained hunting dog will send chills down your spine. mv5bmji2mdy5ndkwml5bml5banbnxkftztgwmzgwmjq3nje-_v1_ql50_sx1777_cr001777977_al_

Gave The Golden Dream vibes, but of course wasn’t as good.
