Robert Rodriguez's low-budget follow-up to his no-budget smash El Mariachi, Desperado, comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English and French soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, while Portuguese and Spanish soundtracks have been recorded in Dolby Digital Stereo. Subtitles are accessible in all of those languages, as well as Thai and Mandarin. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by Rodriguez. This is the same track that appeared on the laserdisc of Desperado, but it is highly entertaining. Rodriguez leads off by saying that with El Mariachi he wanted to show how 6,000 dollars could look like six million, and in Desperado he wanted to show how six million could look like 60 million. For do-it-yourself filmmakers, the disc also contains a free trial of some video editing software. A ten-minute featurette on Rodriguez's editing techniques, filmographies, trailers, and a preview of Once Upon a Time in Mexico round out this strong release from Columbia/TriStar.
