Movies about the Jewish subculture in Mexico City and the social rot 
of the USSR in 1984 would have nothing in common except that both are 
worth viewing. "My Mexican Shivah" was directed by Alejandro 
Springall, a Mexican with a Jewish grandmother, and produced by John 
Sayles, the leftist U.S. film-maker who has worked with Springall 
before. "My Mexican Shivah" should be available from Netflix before 
long, while Alexei Balabanov's "Cargo 200? opens at the Cinema 
Village in NYC on January 2nd.
