Personal Quote:

Trivia:

Edited El mariachi (1992) at a public access station in Austin, Texas. He edited from late at night to the early hours in the morning, because the time was cheaper.

Trademark:

Unlike many action films, his often show the characters reloading their weapons at realistic times and carrying ammunition. See more »
