RED It's basically The Golden Guys.

STONE Edward Norton has cornrows in this! And Robert De Niro has sex with Leeloo Multipass! That is all.

THE PORTLAND LATIN AMERICAN FILM FESTIVAL An impressive selection of films from Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Cuba, Chile, the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Nicaragua, Uruguay, and more.
