The second film of the season from Jackie director Pablo Larrain (No), Not a biopic but a bio-fic, this suspense thriller in inspired by the period in Chilean poet and Communist senator Pablo Neruda was forced underground and into exile by an authoritarian right wing government. Larrain filters the story through the eyes of the obsessive cop  Oscar Peluchonneau (Gael Garcia Bernal) in  hot pursuit, lending this fresh, compelling movie the air of a South American pulp detective novel with distinctly literary aspirations. 

"Surprises always come at the end of Pablo Larraín’s films, when everything suddenly comes together and the audience sits in the cinema feeling both illuminated and floored. Neruda is no different, representing the director at his stunning best with a work of such cleverness and beauty, alongside such power, that it’s hard to know how to parcel out praise: script, cinematography, art direction and performances all vie for kudos and awards…"—Jay Weissberg, Variety

"I don't know if Roberto Bolaño himself could have teased out so well the desire of a hate-filled, impoverished flunky merely to be recognized by the famous artist he's out to destroy." Stuart Klawans, The Nation
