El Mariachi Review


Excellent
Ten years after its release, Austin-bred Director Robert Rodriguez's El Mariachi is still the subject of Texas-sized legend. People who have never seen the film still know about the circumstances of its production. They know about the borrowed camera. They've heard rumors about the director raising money by guinea-pigging himself out for bizarre medical experiments. Perhaps an inkling about the amateur actors? No question about the $7,500 budget.

But what gets lost among the stories about El Mariachi's genesis is the fact that with a micro budget and macro cojones Rodriguez made a debut feature that's a whole lot of fun. Get over the fascination with how little it cost and just dig on main bad guy Moco's excellent all-white guyabera outfit. Next time you light a cigarette, strike a match on someone's face. Or when you ask for a beer, demand that it comes "en botella, wey." And when you ride off into the sunset on your motorcycle, make sure your faithful dog is sitting on the back.

Once Upon A Time In Mexico Review


Good
Once Upon a Time in Mexico has everything it needs to rise to the grand occasion the film's title suggests. And written on the theater marquee, the title resonates nicely with two classic Sergio Leone epics, Once Upon a Time in the West and Once Upon a Time in America. Director Robert Rodriguez has his El Mariachi / Desperado trilogy in the right place to deliver on such a grandiose promise: the lead character comes to the film with a tragic history and a cult following. The cast qualifies as "all-star," featuring matinee pretty boys, sultry Latin ladies and some of Hollywood's most recognizable baddies. The characters run a larger-than-life gamut of legends, presidents, corrupt government agents, and cartel leaders, each with enough grudges, ferocity, and posse to start a professional wrestling federation.

But Leone developed similar elements into films that ran more than three hours. Rodriguez packs it all into 97 minutes and can't help but give only suggestions of a plot and impressions of the forces that drive it. Nevertheless, once the bullets start flying and the one-liners start ricocheting, it doesn't matter much that Once Upon a Time in Mexico is a confusing mess of a film. When it works, you don't care about all the times it doesn't.
