Once upon a Time in Mexico - DVD Clip: Ten-Minute Flick School: Wire Removal

Posted on: January 16, 2004 | Views: 30 | Comment

Director Robert Rodrigues explains how the harness and wires that the actors (Selma Hayek, Antonio Banderas) wear in the handcuffed scene are erased in post-production, so that such stunts and special effects are much less expensive now.

A story of the inextricably intertwined politics between the Mexican government and the country's drug cartels. Johnny Depp stars as the CIA agent trying to take down druglord Barillo, but he can only do it with El Mariachi's (Antonio Banderas) help--with Salma Hayek on fair-maiden backup patrol.
