Description: A biographic story about how he grew up and how he raised the money to shoot El Mariachi. A lot of information on how El Mariachi was made. The book also includes the script of El Mariachi.
Review: I’ve hardly had that much fun reading a making-of style book, but Rodriguez manages to entertain while also to inform. The story about the making of El Mariachi is totally awesome and exotic. This book is part of the Rodriguez myth of the rebel without a crew and an essential reading for every fan and aspiring movie maker. Not only is it nicely written, it also a quick and informative read. Recommended! - Sebastian H.
