Performers, Cast and Crew:
HANGMAN'S KNOT: A group of Confederate soldiers attack a Union gold shipment, unaware that the war has already ended. Fearing prosecution, they hole up in a stagecoach waystation to decide what to do, and take an ex-Union army nurse and three others hostage.
DESPERADO: The Mariachi (Antonio Banderas) tracks down the last Mexican drug-lord "Bucho" with the help of his best friend and a beautiful book store owner (Salma Hayek). In a poetically violent style reminiscent of John Woo and Sam Peckinpah, the Mariachi takes on his entire army of henchmen in a dusty border town as an act of revenge for the murder of his love and his injured musician's hand. Robert Rodriguez's big budget sequel to "El Mariachi." Also starring Cheech Marin (of Cheech and Chong) and Steve Buscemi (RESERVOIR DOGS).
