El escarabajo de oro

Al Green's rating of the film The Gold Bug

An interesting narrative tracing a tale through the centuries. Touching on the follies of colonialism and perception of nation. Pretty impressive, considering the obvious low budget. Could do with sharper editing though. I can imagine a U.S remake of this, which would completely miss the mark !
