Presumed Corruption

"Presumed Guilty," the astounding film about judicial corruption in Mexico - which we wrote about at length here - has once again been ordered removed from Mexican theaters by a member of the same judiciary whose corruption the film seeks to expose. (Apparently, the prosecution's star [read: only] witness, a young man happy to lie an innocent man into prison for murder, decided he wasn't too happy with all of Mexico seeing him do it.)  We once again present - okay, that's grandiose; we link to -  the film, in Spanish with English subtitles (and presumably without the blessing of the film's producers).

Also, memo to the Dittoheads: A judge ordering your film pulled from theaters across the country is censorship. Asking sponsors to decide whether or not they want to support a misogynistic radio host is the free market in action. Just sayin'.
