‘La dictadura perfecta’: some thoughts

These days in Mexico, if you say “La dictadura perfecta”, you are likely to be understood as referring to a movie. Its title intrigued me, even if I had not heard before of Mario Vargas Llosa, the Peruvian writer who is credited with describing Mexico as the perfect dictatorship in 1990. Nor did I know of film directors Jose and Luis Estrada. So I watched the film with my wife tonight, without prejudice.
