Poets aren't the only ones on noble questsThe Orchard
Why I Saw It: Year-end Houston Film Critics Society awards screening, and love Bernal. What I Thought: Like Larraín’s other 2016 achievement, Jackie, Neruda takes a poetic look at the game between these two individuals. More right-brain experiential and less left-brain procedural than some may prefer, but intriguing and melodic, with superb performances.
Neruda. Dir. Pablo Larraín. Perf. Gael García Bernal, Luis Gnecco, Mercedes Morán. The Orchard, 2016.
Biopic of the Nobel Prize-winning Chilean poet Pablo Neruda now a fugitive in hiding for his political activism, and the the dogged inspector on his trail.
