15 Mexican Directors You Should Be Watching

It's no secret that Mexican films are breaking all kinds of box-office records. Eugenio Derbez's bilingual comedy Instructions Not Included became the highest-grossing Spanish-language movie in U.S. history last month. A few weeks later, Alfonso Cuaron's thrilling drama Gravity impressed critics and audiences worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing October release ever. And, most recently, Pulling Strings became the surprise indie hit of the year

Hispanic audiences comprise a huge portion of movie-goers, so it's no surprise that more Latino themed flicks are hitting the big screen. Check out some of the Latinos and Latinas behind the camera with our list of the 15 Mexican directors you should be watching:
