‘The Bridge’s’ Demian Bichir: Hollywood Always Throws in a Little Filth When Depicting Mexico
After the tide goes back out, it’s not at all certain that many so-called “bombs” deserve their much-mocked fates. “Cleopatra,” the 1963 extravaganza, became infamous for the torrid love affair between stars Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, as well as the monumental problems in mounting the film, which took three years to make. (Among other things, it was slowed by Taylor’s emergency tracheotomy and terrible weather.) The final result was actually well-reviewed, nominated for nine Oscars and winning four. It was the highest-grossing film of the year. But today, it’s still a synonym for “debacle,” thanks to the gossip and its rumored $45 million budget (more than $300 million in today’s money). Similarly, “Heaven’s Gate,” the 1980 Michael Cimino drama, spawned tales of directorial excess and drug usage.

City spokeswoman Raelin Storey said work will focus on one section of the bridge. “The repairs are pretty much concentrated to the extended wing wall that’s at the southeast corner of the bridge,” she said. “The work is expected to take about two months to complete.” Storey said the city is being proactive with the project. “[The bridge] is structurally sound for traffic,” she said.

You don’t find too many shows with full scenes in Spanish with subtitles. That makes it more real. When the Mexican characters are in Mexico, they speak Spanish. Sometimes we speak Spanglish, too.
