Cultural Influences on the Border Dancers
del Toro's interview. For me Del Toro's interview with NPR underscores the influences of old time Catholicism on the fertile mind of a growing boy. For the future director, the results are great, but for many of us who are not only Latina or whose homes were under undue influence of the Catholic religion, the consequences are a mixed bag of horrific and great things. I sometimes wish the good came without the horrific squelching of imagination, desire, and other very human and not evil parts of ourselves.
