I watched two movies last night, namely:

1) The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada (
2) Mostly Martha (

Both were good, but the first was incredibly satisfying, partly because I see the female expat project in everything. Flashing back, I focus on the dullness of a small town and the restlessness created as a result. The setting breeds characters looking for an escape—into an affair, a mall, a telenovela, a porn magazine, the nostalgia of a hometown called Jimenez / Cincinnati, or into another country with a lover or mission.
