  1. Nachtreich's rating of the film Macario

  2. Noli Manaig's rating of the film Macario

    An old, cautionary Faustian tale about a peasant faced with worldly temptation. But the insertion of materialism & metaphysics into this world makes for strange bedfellows. Macario's dream of a roasted turkey (& what it means) stands at cross purposes with Nature's order. At the back of Gavaldon's mind: Marx on money, Proudhon on property, diluted with quasi-religion, thus shortchanging its addressee, the workers.

  3. Muraki's rating of the film Macario

    "He couldn't even finish his turkey" bargaining with death, some heavy bergmanic south american shit. loved how fantasized it had been.

  4. Dry Bones's rating of the film Macario

    Una fascinante reinvención de "El amigo de la muerte" (Pedro Antonio de Alarcón). Puesta en escena y fotografía: impecables.

  5. Amadeus Magnus's rating of the film Macario

    Macario's fairy tale with the Devil, God and the Death. "candles in the wind".

  6. finn's rating of the film Macario

    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.

  7. Sombra's rating of the film Macario

    Un clásico de clásicos. Esta pelicula es alucinante hasta el delirio. El trabajo de Gabriel Figueroa es impresionante.

  8. Berjuan's rating of the film Macario

    A classic in the same vain as The Virgin Spring, Kwaidan, Ugetsu and The Seventh Seal.
