Probably as good as it can be...
on February 2, 2011
The copy of El Mariachi is really rather poor quality, but it's probably about as good as it can be. I gather it's a telecine of a film copy of the original - hardly Bluray quality. It's interesting as the first film Robert Rodriguez made.
Desperado, by contrast, is much better quality. It is a sequel to El Mariachi, but clearly made with a much larger budget.
Having these two together is a much better deal than having El Mariachi by itself.
