Moco’s manicurist is shown in a purple bikini throughout the whole movie.
A woman holds a letter opener to a man’s clothed testicles, but we don’t see any nudity of anything of that matter.


Film review:Translated by www.rabudo-ru.com


In December 1991, a young man wanted to sell his favorite work, not a script, not a student work, but a large-scale film with complete production. The news spread through Hollywood. The film is called al maliache and directed by Robert Rodriguez. Without the following details, the film is nothing extraordinary. The director is only 23 years old and costs $7000. There is only one photographer – Robert himself. A month later, three big Hollywood companies competed for high salary employment and signed a contract with him. He finally signed with Columbia. Before that, unknown young men began to be on an equal footing with star figures in the same company. Rodriguez made his first film at the age of 8. This is an 8mm cartoon. At the age of 11, there was a real wealth in the family: the kwazar camera, which can be connected to the TV, can shoot everything within a radius of 12 feet, or audio color images. However, he could not edit the film. Rodriguez had to master editing skills from the beginning of shooting. Later, my father bought a second camera. Using these two camera equipment, “Ross hurigannos” company (Robert Rodriguez and his brothers and sisters act as actors) began to make amateur films and won many awards in short film festivals. With these films (his high school grades were always poor), he entered the film department of the University of Texas in Austin. By the way, he didn’t even graduate from high school. After the success of “Al mariache”, thousands of Hollywood films are about to flow in, and it’s meaningless to stay in school.

After his classmates and friends finished the script, they were struggling to find a filmmaker to buy it. Rodriguez knows why they failed: all scripts require tens of millions of investment, but their author is unknown. A brilliant idea flashed through his mind: why not write a low investment script, make it as beautiful as possible, and then sell it to the Spanish film market, where there are a network of companies that shoot low-cost films for the Latin American market. Then he began to fight alone.

Seriously, the film that cost only $7000 to make sold for 20000 yuan, and the income is good. If successful, we can make further efforts to extort some shooting funds from the publisher.

Rodriguez has made detailed records from the shooting, editing and sale of Al maliache. On this basis, Rodriguez has processed it into a best-selling book called “rebels without the crew”. Although the contents of the book hurt many film authorities – its main point is: “don’t stay in school to study, go out to make movies.”—— But it has become a must read in all American film schools.

The following excerpt is an abridged translation of a chapter. It’s called——
