"In writing fiction, the more fantastic the tale, the plainer the prose should be. Don't ask your readers to admire your words when you want them to believe your story." - Ben Bova [ more quotes ]


El Mariachi
Written by Robert Rodriguez

Filmed for the incredibly small sum of $7,000, "El Mariachi" tells the tale of a nameless wandering musician (Carlos Gallardo) looking for a new place to play his music. At the same time, Azul (Reinol Martinez) has just broken out of prison and is on his way to kill crime boss Moco (Peter Marquardt). All Moco's men know is that the man they are after dresses in black and carries a guitar case. Unfortunately, this is the same description of El Mariachi.
