A pre-Hollywood Selma Hayek is the only reason to rent the 1995 Mexican drama Midaq Alley, yet she’s in only a third of it — playing a widow’s innocent daughter who, abandoned by her true love, is seduced into a life of drugs and prostitution. Never mind the lost honor; it’s the crushed spirit that gets you. C+
