Please pardon the cross-posting.

I thought you might be interested in what these Latino film critics have to say about Pixar's Coco, as published in this Remezcla article:

"...The majority of critics have been positive in their remarks about the animated feature, but many lack the cultural competence to discuss the most Mexican aspects of the film. From calling Coco inauthentic to misspelling words in Spanish, the stockpile of opinions disseminated by major media sites has one glaring omission – not one of them is penned by a Latino writer. Here at Remezcla we don’t normally publish film reviews, but this felt like a watershed moment. Someone needed to step in and uplift the voices of Latino film critics..."
