El Escape De Los Santos
5 April 2006 | by aibarra-2See all my reviews

A small budget production by local television personality Ricky Mendoza from Eagle Pass, Texas, a bustling border town on the banks of the Rio Grande in South Texas, "Escape" is a working man's version of "El Mariachi" or "Como Agua Para Chocolate". Highlighting a real-life imprisonment in Coahuila, the filmmaker shows vision and authenticity of a region of Northern Mexico and the corruption that pervades the country. Mendoza has teamed up with composer Carlos Coral to give "Escape" a cultural flair all its own. The colloquial dialect exemplified in the Spanish dialogue is interesting and the character actors (such as Mosqueda) are almost as good as "Desperado" and "Once Upon a Time in Mexico".
