    Raul Ruiz´s first film in the United States. The scenario of [#i_]The Golden Boat[_i#] based on the popular television series 「Kojak」 is a comic crime genre. A bloodthirsty assassin encounters strange characters in a row, seeking a Mexican star actor with a philosopher and a rock critic. The people who are unaware of what they do resemble the figure of a man in a drifting boat. In the film funny and strange, the grotesque view on New York creates an atmosphere of fable. In this film, where violence is represented as a means of communication, not destruction, Ruiz transforms New York into an unexplainable threat and metaphysical maze and he borrows the style of American crime drama and television soap opera in a futile manner. The personality of Ruiz, who made the film as an outsider in New York, is reflected in the characters and leaves his distinct signature. [JANG Byungwon]

In 1968, he releases his first completed feature, Three Sad Tigers, immediately winning the Golden Leopard in Locarno that year. Ruiz became one of the key Chilean directors of New Latin American Cinema.Influenced by the fabulist tradition that runs through much Latin American literature ,Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Jorge Luis Borges, and Alfonso Reyes, Ruiz is a poet of fantastic images whose films slip effortlessly from reality to imagination and back again. Ruiz is renowned and acclaimed worldwide, regular presence, for the past 40 years, in the major international film festivals ? nominated 4 times for the Golden Palm at Cannes, where was also jury in 2002, won the Golden Leopard in Locarno, won the Siler Bear in Berlin, won the Cesar, was nominated for the Golden Lion int Venice, won Twice the FIPRESCI Award in Montreal, was honoured in 2004 Rotterdam - ´Raul Ruiz: An Eternal Wanderer´ and also in 2007 Rome Film Festival that showcased 46 of his films.
