| To Hell with the Treasure
Transparency never was Raul Ruiz's strong side and his Treasure Island very vaguely based on Robert Louis Stevenson's novel is especially opaque. As in the novel everything happening is seen with the eyes of a boy – time is now and to a small tourist hotel comes some captain as a lodger, there also are some crazy blind man presenting everybody with glass eyes, strange writer writing some obscure adventure novel and an old cook named Long John Silver who can cook nothing but omelets. And every one of them including the boy is reading Treasure Island novel trying to find out through it where the treasure is hidden. Then they all sail away to some especially bizarre finish.
