    As a Mexican-American who grew up with a father involved as a local DJ and equipment deal, I found this movie to be VERY personal.

    While my family did not come from Monterrey, cumbia sonideras and rebajadas are still more or less the soundtrack of my adolescent youth and early teens as we struggled to day-to-day in the marketplaces and cities across California whilst getting adjusted in the country. I do not think my father is aware of how immediate…

    The critics that have issues with this work have never slept in a space they couldn't control, watched any Kurosawa films other than his historical dramas, hate paintings, disregard human struggle, think the effects of war stop when it ends, want perfect communities, get flustered when following multiple storylines, and know absolutely nothing about how your imagination can literally be the only thing to try and get you through hard times.

    I worked at a night club full-time, 5 days a week for 3 years. This place was the loudest venue on the local strip by far, receiving frequent noise complaints from the neighboring houses and businesses. They never reduced their volume levels, overcompensating the size of the venue with the attraction the owners felt like they were bringing.

    For over 2 years of my time there, I had worked irresponsibly by choosing not to wear earplugs. The flawed logic for…
