Top Mexican Movies to celebrate Cinco de Mayo!

Today is Cinco de Mayo, which exactly translates to Five of May. This celebration commemorates the Mexican army’s unexpected victory over the French on May 5, 1982. The Battle of Puebla was won under the leadership of General Ignacio Zaragoza. Cinco de Mayo is not to be mistaken for Mexico’s Independence Day, which is on September 16th. Anyway, Mexicans are celebrating their hearts out today! So if you want to join in the celebrations, it’s time to bring out the Cuervo and watch cinco of the top Mexican movies below:

Robert Rodriguez’s Mexico trilogy – El Mariachi (1992) | Desperado (1995) | Once Upon a Time in Mexico (2003)
