Just how did esteemed director of photography Rodrigo
Prieto end up playing Jack’s Mexican hustler?
“I was starting to light the scene and Ang said he
wanted to ask a big favor,” recalls the
cinematographer. (Lee, who explains that the actor
originally cast turned out to be too short, notes,
“Rodrigo will do anything for a director, including
putting himself in a dark alley!”) Prieto continues,
“They whisked me off to hair and makeup and
wardrobe, and God, it was horrible.”
