Featuring brief interview clips with about half of the main cast(keeping in mind that the movie had a rather packed main cast), clips from all three movies and more or less every interviewee(including Robert Rodriguez, himself)'s opinion on what the movie is, this is a fair behind the scenes piece. Robert explains how Tarantino pointed out how Rodriguez was basically making a tribute to Sergio Leone's Dollars Trilogy, and suggested the clever and fitting title, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, and how the movie then came to be from that, years after the conversation was had. The various actors speaking about what they did as far as stunts go and going into detail about their character(though no one - the audience included - apart from perhaps Rodriguez himself, seems terribly certain *who* the Bad and the Ugly are... as this is quite clearly The Good, The Bad and The Ugly, the third and epic movie in Sergio's trilogy). It was interesting enough to hear, and the pacing isn't too bad. I would have liked to hear from Danny Trejo, and maybe Mickey Rourke, too, but knowing Rodriguez' shooting habits, they probably quite simply weren't there when the interviews were done. I recommend this to any fan of the actors, the movie, and Rodriguez. 6/10
