More often than not, the beauty of Latino cinema lies in the filmmakers’ uncanny ability to capture the essence of everyday life on camera and sharing the rich and nuanced culture of various Latin American countries.

GAYOT's list of the Best Latin American Movies features films from Mexico, Cuba, Chile, Venezuela, Argentina and Brazil by celebrated filmmakers such as Alfonso Cuarón, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Guillermo del Toro and the late (and notorious) Luis Buñuel.
