Comic short from a future great
23 October 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Robert Rodriguez's first film is this eight-minute black-and-white short that stars his young brother and three of his sisters. This film was made prior to his Mexican mini-classic EL MARIACHI and years before the success of DESPERADO catapulted both he and star Antonio Banderas to stardom.

BEDHEAD is frenetic comedy aimed squarely at children and is meant to be a light, slight bit of entertainment, nothing more. What stands out is Rodriguez as director – it's here that he got a chance to work on the style that he has become famous for, as he speeds up the film and shoots from all kinds of crazy camera angles, displaying a definite influence from Sam Raimi. The other notable thing is Rebecca Rodriguez, who gives a charming performance as the narrator/heroine of the story.
