RESUMEN: En el homenaje por el décimo aniversario de la muerte del capitán Rodríguez Plata, su hijo Gus se da cuenta de que la vida de su padre es un misterio para él. De la mano de su amigo Máquina decide aventurarse a resolver los enigmas que rodean el deceso de su padre. En el trayecto se hará de cómplices como su tío Felipe, un científico loco que se refiere a Gus como "pequeño primate", y su fiel asistente, el gordo Bernabé, que es bueno como el pan; contará con la ayuda de Jerónimo "el Reptil" Rodero, quien expía sus pecados viviendo en el desierto donde se alimenta de culebras y armadillos. Juntos deberán combatir a Venus de Venegas, un rico empresario coleccionista de dulces exóticos y de piezas arqueológicas y a su manga de secuaces: la hermosa Circe, que sólo encuentra paz destruyendo obras de arte que rivalizan con su belleza, el conserje del Museo de Antropología Xipe Totec, cuyo apodo deriva del parecido de su horrible rostro con el dios maya de la renovación (el dios despellejado), así como un sacerdote corrupto llamado Mano Santa, y Roberto Bob Boby, campeón regional de tiro y veloz corredor de autos. En medio de esta épica búsqueda a través del pasado, héroes y villanos pasarán por míticos parajes arqueológicos como Paquimé o Yaxchilán, mientras intentan descifrar las pistas contenidas en cajas negras de aviones, códices mayas y antiguas ciudades prehispánicas en pos de "el brillo de los hombres": la calavera de cristal

It is a comedy of errors and lies constructed with a multiplicity of flashbacks. Diego and Silvia, two young Mexico City dweller, accidentally meet and fall in love based on lies. They discover that love is based on deceit. Silvia is a radio commentator who is in search of a writer to compose a nonexistent news event. He follows the game of deceit aware that both are lying about their present "real" identities, their past relationships, and the chaotic world that surrounds them. The main story line is complemented with a carnivalesque, dizzying, and congested city. The profusion of flashbacks gives a sense of simultaneity of space and time--another lie in the composition of the cinematic text

This documentary, "The Lost Reels", deals with two stories about the loss of valuable Mexican film material. The film begins with the search for the whereabouts of the films that Servando González, who was asked by "a military type" to set up six cameras around a Mexico City plaza in order to film the student protest on October 2nd, 1968, for what turned out to be one of the most controversial events in Mexican history (the Tlatelolco massacre) when soldiers opened fire on a crowd of demonstrators. The man who hired González appeared after the raw film was developed and took it all away. The second part of the documentary focuses on the fire of March 24, 1982 at Mexico's federally run film archive, the Cineteca Nacional, and the testimony of witnesses who saw the conflagration and explosions that day. The fire, the cause of which is still debated, completely destroyed the library as well as approximately 6000 films -- essentially everything in their holdings
