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.
