I’ve got a new movie review up over at Cinema Retro. VIVA VILLA! tells the story of Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa. It’s got a script by Ben Hecht, and while it’s half fictional, it’s is very entertaining and shows what it’s like to suffer under tyranical rule and have all your rights taken away. Villa as played by Wallace Beery is half outlaw himself and so has no qualms about joining the uprising against Porfirio Diaz.
Check out the review here.
