When Brady Baxter finds out his girlfriend is cheating on him, his best friend Tommy Quinn decides the only way to get his mind off of it is to take a drug-fueled, death defying journey into the sweaty black heart of darkness that is Mexicali. This is not Tijuana, this is not your fathers Mexico. Things turn beyond twisted when they meet a back alley tour guide named “The Mexican Cowboy”, who takes them down the rabbit hole, that is the seediest parts of Mexicali. Cock fights, Shamans, and a make-shift strip club called “Chocho Fuego”, it looks to be the most insane birthday celebration in recent memory. When they meet two American girls and head to a desolate hotel, the night is about to end with a bang. Soon, it's clear the girls have other ideas. Sex games, drugs, torture, eventually held for ransom by the Mexican drug cartel. How did Brady's birthday dream turn into his worst nightmare?

Other People

The week’s list is flooded with documentaries on all number of subjects. Of these, For the Love of Spock is the only I’m most interested in seeing and the critics are with me on that one. However, it is not the most likely film when it comes to box office success. I would have to give that to Other People, although being on Video on Demand might stop it from being seen in theaters.
