Abstract

Este artículo propone la hipótesis de que el filme El Chacal de Nahueltoro de Miguel Littín se encuentra en sitial de bisagra, junto con la novela Eloy de Carlos Droguett, respecto a obras literarias y cinematográficas cuyo protagonista es un criminal, en especial el poemario Cnminal de Jaime Pinos y la película Tony Manero de Pablo Larraín. A partir de esto se sostiene la presencia de una tradición del criminal en la literatura y cine en Chile, con bandidos y asesinos, la cual pone de manifiesto una manera de pactar (Hobsbawm y Foucault) entre este individuo y la ley, la norma, el sistema y el Estado. This article proposes the hypothesis that the film El Chacal de Nahueltoro by Miguel Littín, together with the novel Eloy by Carlos Droguett, works as a hinge between former works (both literary and filmic) whose protagonist is a criminal, and other, more modern and known works such as Cnminal by Jaime Pinos and Tony Manero by Pablo Larraín. The author argues that the presence of a criminal tradition in literature and film in Chile, with bandits and murderers, shows a way of agreement (via Hobsbawm and Foucault) between this individual and the law, regulation, the system, and the State.
