Herod's Law (original Spanish title La ley de Herodes) is a 1999 Mexican comedy produced by Bandidos Films. A fable of a janitor turned Mayor on a little town lost in the Mexican desert, who gradually realizes how far his new acquainted power and corruption can get him, the film is a political satire of corruption in Mexico and the long-ruling PRI party (notably the first Mexican film to criticize PRI explicitly by name and carried some controversy and interference from the Mexican government because of it). The film won the Ariel Award for Best Picture from the Mexican Academy of Film.
