Mexican film tears into culture of corruption

"The Perfect Dictatorship" takes a dig at government and TV network in a satirical show about corruption.

    As the hunt goes to find dozens of missing students in Mexico, a reknowned filmmaker is trying to take on the government and the media establishment, for their role in the country's culture of corruption.

    "The Perfect Dictatorship" portrays Mexico in the last few decades as a nation dominated by a corrupted political class and deeply wounded by social injustices and drug violence.
