Un clásico de clásicos. Esta pelicula es alucinante hasta el delirio. El trabajo de Gabriel Figueroa es impresionante.
From the short story by B Traven - author of the Jungle Novels, The Treasure Of The Sierra Madre and The Death Ship. Macario is beautifully shot and a wry faustian parable.
Macario's fairy tale with the Devil, God and the Death. "candles in the wind".
A classic in the same vain as The Virgin Spring, Kwaidan, Ugetsu and The Seventh Seal.
"He couldn't even finish his turkey"
bargaining with death, some heavy bergmanic south american shit. loved how fantasized it had been.
