    I'm not usually a conspiracy theorist, but I think this movie went directly to dvd instead of playing in theaters due to pressure or threats from government or high ranking officials. This was a great, eye-opening movie of the atrocities really happening in Juarez. Very anti-NAFTA, and I agree.

    This movie is the best movie I believe I have seen all year. It is compelling and moving. You relly feel for the real life people. Jennifer Lopez was amazing in it. I loved it.
