To make a faster paced and reconstructed version of the film with grindhouse elements. I find the original version too messy and unfocused with Carolinas (Salma Hayek) scenes split out across the whole film. In this version all her scenes have been placed at the beginning and then a more streamlined version of the film can take place.


*To make it faster paced and more streamlined. *To add a Grindhouse feeling.

Change List:

*added the song "Misirlou" by Dick Dale & His Del-tones in the new credit scene. *removed original credit scene *all scenes with Carolina (Salma Hayek) have been placed in the beginning instead of spread out like in the original. *cut the Barillo Estate scene *cut the AFN office scene *cut the President scene *moved El Mariachi & Carolina scene *trimmed the scene when El Mariachi enters the church. *moved Sands on the phone meeting the kid to later in the movie. *cut Sands and Jorge (FBI) scene (they only communicate on the phone in this edit) *cut El Mariachi meeting with the other Mariachis at the club. *cut the whole arena scene (Bullfight) *cut Sands meeting Belini a second time. *cut Sands meeting with Ajedrez *cut Jorge scene. *moved El Mariachi and his Mariachi friends playing at the Presidents place. *moved Carolina flashbacks. *added film damage/grain to the whole movie to get a grindhouse feeling.

Additional Notes:
