"Stylish (except for the hair)" - a review by pearly

Bedhead is a cute little short film that comes as a bonus on the El Mariachi (1992) DVD. It's basically a collaboration between Robert Rodriguez and some of his brothers and sisters. It's a black and white 8 minute short film about a boy with such bad bedhead that it sets off a chain of events involving super powers, bumps on the head, and even more bedhead.

Being one of director Robert Rodriguez's earliest works, you can see that he's spending time playing around with different camera techniques - he's experimenting. Having said that, though, the film does not end up being all over the place because of it; it's still a cohesive piece. The young kids playing the lead parts are great - the black and white makes them look super-cool.

Bedhead is fun, well-paced, and doesn't take itself too seriously. Certainly a sign of things to come.

pearly gives this movie 8 out of 10.
