24 August 2004 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

'Ten Minute Flick School: Fast, Cheap and in Control' helps making the movie 'Once Upon a Time in Mexico' more interesting. It shows us how certain scenes were created using digital cameras and digital techniques.

Director Robert Rodriguez explains to us how he used the digital things to speed up certain things and how he made things cheaper. There are some interesting tricks he uses like mixing to shots together and erasing parts out of the images.

Although this short extra is not really needed it helped me to appreciate 'Once Upon a Time in Mexico, a movie not very great, a little more.
