A new Mexican film called Miss Bala has been praised for breaking new ground for its portrayal of the brutality of the country's drug war.

Miss Bala has also been noted as one of the few films in Mexico to depict President Felipe Calderon's drug war as corrupt and futile.

The filmmakers said it is impossible to portray the drug war without shedding light on corruption.

Inspired by a true story, the film is about a beauty contestant who was forced to work for a ruthless drug cartel boss.

Al Jazeera's Adam Raney reports from Mexico City.
