Luis Mandoki has been called the Michael Moore of Mexico, a filmmaker whose overtly partisan documentaries preach messages to viewers who are already inclined to believe. But that's not the worst thing his critics had to say of Mandoki's most recent film, which purports to prove fraud in the Mexican presidential election of 2006.

It would be easy to think of Luis Mandoki's "┬┐Quien Es el Sr. Lopez?" (Who Is Mr. Lopez?) as the Mexican "Fahrenheit 9/11" in reverse. Superficially, at least, the comparisons are tempting. Like Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit," "Sr. Lopez" presents a documentary portrait of a politician who's been adulated by some and loathed by others. In "Fahrenheit," of course, that figure is George W. Bush, depicted as a bumbler reading stories about pet goats while the twin towers went up in flames.

Norma Aleandro, the Argentine actress whose role in the Oscar-winning "The Official Story" brought her international attention, has arrived here to make a movie with Scandinivian star Liv Ullmann. Asked what it would be like to work with the Norwegian actress, Aleandro replied: "It is more difficult to work with a bad actor, than with one who knows how to do his work." They will be making "Gaby," directed by Mexico's Luis Mandoki.

When director Luis Mandoki ("White Palace") dropped out of the Steve Roth/Universal production of "Mobsters" a few weeks ago, Michael Karbelnikoff got the break he's been working toward for 15 years. The veteran director of TV spots for Levi's 501 jeans, Bud Light and other products was picked to step in, and now faces the pressure of directing a name cast--and his first feature.

Fans of "White Palace," the novel, may be surprised by "White Palace," the movie . Directed by Luis Mandoki for Universal Pictures, it stars James Spader as an upscale advertising exec who falls for slatternly waitress--and older woman--Susan Sarandon.

Near the beginning of Luis Mandoki's harrowing "Innocent Voices," a man with a suitcase hurries out of a shack in a shantytown village. His wife, Kella (Leonor Varela), doesn't bother to bid him goodbye, for he is fleeing to the U.S. in the midst of the civil war that racked El Salvador from 1980 to 1992, leaving her with three small children to support as a seamstress.
