El Mariachi (1992) All he wants to be is to be a Mariachi, like his father, his grandfather before him. But the town he thinks will bring him luck brings only a curse - of deadly mistaken identity.

Rubbish on two fronts
- El Mariachi / Desperado review by AB
FIrstly - pretentious in that the WHOLE film is in Spanish and no-one can understand what is being said or what is going on
Secondly - the cast list according to the synopsis on this site and the DVD cover says that it stars Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek - neither of those two appear in the DVD that I have just watched and are not listed in the credits that appear at the end of the film.
