includes his "Ten-Minute FilmSchool"

Spent $7k ($3k of which he earned via month-long in-clinic medical trial, during which he wrote the screenplay) to make El Mariachi, resulting in a multi-film Hollywood deal.

  • I haven't seen the El Mariachi, but I started watching the AntonioBanderas sequel Desperado and clicked it off after 20minutes, it was so bad. (I get really irritated by the campy-violence movies.)
