Want to download Spanish movie with Eng subtitles

Hi, I am looking for a good & interesting movie in Latin American Spanish, but with English subtitles. I'll watch and listen to the movie a couple/few times. Then, I'll watch the Spanish only version without subtitles (by removing them or a different download). For my Spanish study at times, I do this. But I've only done this with one movie: Como Aqua por Chocote. I have watched and listened to this movie many, many, times. This helps me. Any suggestions on a really good movie in Latin American Spanish? It does not have to be new. Thanks in advance, Gracias, Kevin

The Cantinflas movies are pretty good. They're a little old (1950 and 60s-ish), and a lot of the comedy is based on puns and wordplay, but IIRC most have subtitles.

It seems like Latin American movies with subtitles are much harder to find than Spanish movies.

I really liked "The Motorcycle Diaries," which is about Che Guevara's road trip through South America in his youth.

One that my Spanish class just watched was "La Historia Oficial" which is about the mothers of children lost in Argentina's Dirty War. To tell you the truth, it wouldn't have been my first choice for a movie to watch for fun, but it turned out to be pretty good. People in class have found that one on Netflix using the English name (The Official Story). I got The Motorcycle Diaries from a friend, but I'm sure you can find it at a library or floating around online somewhere.

Voy a recorder "cantinflas" peliculas.

No quero rely solamente on subtitulos. But at this point in my learning I need to learn on the subtitles to get meaning.

I also replay some dialogues over, and over, and over again. It helps my.

Unas pelicuals he mirado: Mar Dentro, Amores Perros, Y Tu Mama Tambien, Hable Con Ella, Tesis.

La proxima peliculas voy a mirar:

La Historial Oficial.
Todo Solo Mi Madra
Obre Los Ojos
Crime of Padre Amaro.

He mirado una película se llama "Sin Nombre". Es una drama y tiene mucha violencia y muchas malas palabras pero era muy buena. Me gustó. Si tienes Netflix tu puedes bajarla para mirar en tu computadora. Es de las pandillas de Guatemala y una muchacha que quiere escapar a los estados unidos. Te gustaria.
