Pretty darn good for a movie where the director did everything except act (there would have been no one to hold the camera). Apparently the original version cost ony $7,000.

Even with a short run time, El mariachi fills every minute with meaning. Slow mo plus fast mo scenes, enticing visuals, and especially the mariachi's dream sequences make a feast for the mind. The addition of the suave, vengeful Moco makes it an artful, indie, "action" thriller.

For a $7000 budget... that is a damn good movie! I really enjoyed it.

Very cheaply done Mexican film by Robert Rodriguez, it uses its financial limits to create an excitingly edited action film. Recommended, as is the indy film making primer that constitutes its DVD audio commentary.
