I hope this wonderful Chilean film finds a US distributor. I saw this at an American Cinematheque presentation in Hollywood. I had never heard of the director before. The themes are somewhat hackneyed--the corrosive and ultimately destructive influence of power and megalomania on a seemingly stable personality; the devastating effect of European colonizers on the Indians; the frontier as a repository for all kinds of misfits, adventurers, loners, and psychopaths. There are signs of the influence of such films as "Aguirre, the Wrath of God" and "Viridiana." Yet, it all works, and powerfully. This certainly deserves an audience beyond the cinematheque and art house circuit. See it if you can!
