Has Success Spoiled Robert Rodriguez?

I just tried watching Once Upon a Time In Mexico. The best thing I can say about it is that, since it's the DVD copy, I don't have to waste any MORE time rewinding it.

Willem Dafoe, in Perma-Tan pancake make-up, with his lines dubbed in to get the Mexican accent right. Even Johnny Depp couldn't save this, although he tried, with lines like "Are you a Mexi-CAN or a Mexi-CAN'T?" In one of his signature quirky bits, he killed a cook because he made the best roast pork he's ever tasted. He shoulda skipped that, and killed his agent instead.
