(mbc.net) Antonio Banderas portrays El Mariachi, a gun-carrying guitarist determined to avenge his slain girlfriend's death while simultaneously eliminating Mexico's most vicious drug cartel.  He is in pursuit of Bucho (Joaquim de Almeida), the sleazy drug distributor responsible for his lover's murder. 

With the help of a man named Buscemi (who is none other than Steve Buscemi), El Mariachi tracks Bucho down to a small town that sustains itself through drug smuggling.  Each business in the village serves as a front for Bucho's operation, even its humble bookstore and its beautiful owner, Carolina (Salma Hayek).

Desperado was a commercial success, earning $25.4 million at the box office and an MTV Movie Award nomination.
