Book Description
This is the first academic book dedicated to the filmmaking of the three best known Mexican born directors, Guillermo del Toro, Alejandro González Iñárritu, and Alfonso Cuarón. Deborah Shaw examines the career trajectories of the directors and presents a detailed analysis of their most significant films with a focus on both the texts and the production contexts in which they were made. These include studies on del Toro’s Cronos/ Chronos, El laberinto del fauno/Pan’s Labyrinth, and Hellboy II: The Golden Army; Iñárritu’s Amores Perros, 21 Grams and Babel; and Cuarón’s Sólo con tu pareja/ Love in the Time of Hysteria, Y tu mamá también, and Children of Men. The Three Amigos will be of interest to all those who study Hispanic and Spanish Cinema in particular, and World and contemporary cinema in general.
