Robert Rodriguez, 1992, USA/Mexico, 82 min.
Wednesday, April 4 at 8:00 pm - part of Strange Brew: Cult Films at Schlafly Bottleworks´╗┐


The debut by then twenty-four-year-old Robert Rodriguez was famously made in two weeks for seven thousand dollars, and part of its charm is that it really looks like it was made in two weeks for seven grand. The kind-spirited guitarist El Mariachi (Carlos M. Gallardo) simply wants to wander through life as his father and grandfather did, with a song in his heart and a smile on his lips. He wanders into a small mob-run town, guitar case in hand. It so happens that the local criminal element is awaiting the arrival of vicious hit man Azul (Reinol Martinez), who is well known for carrying his weapons in…a guitar case. Just when you think you’ve got a lock on what’s going to happen next, director Robert Rodriguez throws us for a loop, unexpectedly alternating whimsical comedy with graphic violence.

Presented in the lively atmosphere of Schlafly Bottleworks, 7260 Southwest Avenue, Maplewood MO. There is ample parking and great beer on tap!

Special Admission $4.00
