Favorite Foreign Films: El Mariachi (1992)

Film: El Mariachi
Country: Mexico/USA
Director: Robert Rodriguez
A case of mistaken identity pits a wandering mariachi against the local drug cartel in a small Mexican town. Famous for being created for $7,000, the film that launched Robert Rodriguez is filled with what would become his trademark humor and style. Worth a look if only to enjoy the fast-motion scene of a mariachi brandishing a cheesy electronic keyboard instrument. Fun!
