El Mariachi (Mexico - 1992)

When its over, I'd forgotten how entertaining this simple little film was.  This was director, Robert Rodriguez's, first feature film and it costed him $7,000 to make.  That's impressive, even for its time.  It's an example of what creativity, simplicity, and passion put together can create.  It didn't have all the fancy stunts and FX of A-listed films, but it had what mattered - a story. The film's about two men dressed in black, two guitar suitcases, and a case of mistaken identity.  The result?  Death, blood, and revenge. 

My rating: 3.5 out of 5
