  1. toutoinot@gmail.com's rating of the film Treasure Island

    Ruiz avait ce style dans les années 80 inspiré des profondeurs de champ à la Welles et y plongeait à peu près n'importe quoi. Comment reconnaître le roman d'aventures même si on se doute bien que ce n'est pas son propos? Avec ça un casting du même acabit c'est à dire disparate et surtout une version ici (Voix off de Léaud en français et tout le dialogue "in" doublé en anglais) carrément impossible.

  2. Jugu Abraham's rating of the film Treasure Island

    "Memory is like a diamond" quote from this fascinating adaptation, suited more for reflective adults than for kids. Steeped in philosophy and literary asides. The best performance from the late Martin Landau. Amazing line up of actors and actresses--including Mrs Jean Luc Godard. Demands repeated viewings, as all Ruiz' films, to savour all its juices. R L Stevenson merely provides a skeleton, the body is from Ruiz.

  3. MathildeF's rating of the film Treasure Island

    Une rareté. Du grand Ruiz. Merci Mubi.

  4. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Treasure Island

    It's hard to get good prints of Ruiz's films. This looked like one of those B movies you see late at night. The people in this movie are not very nice to the boy. Choking him, chloroforming him. No wonder he's confused. Multiple men claim to be his father, and he thinks he's in Treasure Island. People are re-enacting the movie, like it's a role-playing game. But aren't those dead bodies?

  5. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Treasure Island

    Spirited and perverse! A noirish fever dream of Treasure Island and overcoming one's childhood. Come adrift with little Jon Hawkins.
