El Mariachi (1992)



Reviews and Comments

Robert Rodriguez's action comedy, famously made for a mere seven thousand dollars, is a delightfully fresh take on old material. It's about a travelling mariachi -- a guitar player -- who runs across a denizen of warring drug dealers and is mistaken for a criminal. Rodriguez's electric visual style makes the budgetary constraints invisible, and star Carlos Gallardo has a charismatic screen presence.
