Movie Recommendation: Innocent Voices
This is a recommendation I do not make lightly. It is about a young child trying to grow up during El Salvador's civil war in 1980. I lived in Los Angeles, almost the same age as the main character at the time and vividly remember all the El Salvadorians there who had fled the violence. The drug gangs we paid to distribute the CIA coke like R13 and their many facsimiles since that time stood testament to the true evil behind that slaughter; Us: the U motherfucking S of goddamn A, as fucking usual. It brought tears so many times I honestly don't know how I made it through ... and it was just a movie. This, my friends, is how you make enemies that would see themselves die just to make you bleed. Grab a fine Malbec and let your soul live for a moment. Simply see on your screen, in your safe living room, what would have been your life if you're my age and happened to have been born in El Salvador. It is available for instant watch on Netflix.
