Today’s film is the 1991 short Bedhead. The film marks the debut work of filmmaker Robert Rodriguez, who directed, and co-wrote the film with Bryant Delafosse, as well as acting as cinematographer and editor, among other jobs. Rodriguez soon broke into feature films with El Mariachi, and has gone on to a career that has included films such as From Dusk Till Dawn, Sin City, and one half of the Grindhouse feature, titled Planet Terror. His newest film, titled Machete Kills, opens in wide release in American theatres this weekend.

This is another edition of Short Starts, where we present a weekly short film(s) from the start of a filmmaker or actor’s career. It’s a sad day for Robert Rodriguez. His latest movie, Machete Kills, is a dud at the box office with his lowest wide-release opening of all time. Yes, even lower than Shorts. But if the Machete sequel is neither good nor popular, that doesn’t mean we can’t spend this weekend enjoying Rodriguez’s other work. Specifically, let’s go back to the beginning and check out his first film. No, not El Mariachi. Before even that landmark low-budget breakout, he made an 8-minute short while a student at the University of Texas called Bedhead. Made in 1990 with an $800 budget and employing his siblings as the cast and other relatives as the crew, Rodriguez co-wrote the script with brother David (also the title character) and friend Bryant Delafosse.

Robert Rodriguez has spent a significant amount of time in his career making children's movies, both building the Spy Kids franchise and making titles like Shorts and The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl, but one must never forget the filmmaker's love of ridiculous violence. As though he's attempting to make up for his time spent appealing to the G-rated audience, Rodriguez's more adult-oriented material tends to go a little bit overboard, spilling gallons and gallons of fake blood in movies like Planet Terror, Sin City, or From Dusk Till Dawn. And as you can see in the above red band trailer for the upcoming Machete Kills, which comes to us via IGN, that pattern isn't changing with the director's latest work. A sequel to Rodriguez's 2010 film and based on a screenplay written by newcomer Kyle Ward, the new movie finds the titular hero (Danny Trejo) called upon by »

The Artful Roger: A Thank You To Roger Ebert
The mind rarely works in linear fashion, and I suspect mine may even be more chaotic than most. That item pinballed around the ol’ noggin, and, somewhere in all that bouncing here and there, triggered a bit of nostalgia. Probably because I was working on the piece during Oscar week, the mention of Ebert reminded me that there had been a time when this would’ve been the point in the year I’d be looking forward to the annual “If We Gave Out the Oscars” (or something like that) show done by Ebert along with his on-screen partner of nearly two dozen years, »
