  1. mootz15's rating of the film Neruda

    An apt and not entirely uncritical telling of Neruda's flight into exile with elements of a slightly hackneyed magical realism. The movie's faults however are ultimately what save it from mediocrity; it is a bit heavyhanded and a bit pretentious and a bit too heartfelt and therefore impressively true to its namesake.

  4. MATTEO BITTANTI's rating of the film Neruda

    It's not just about Neruda. It's a biography of a country that was raped, violated, experimented on by the Yankees (the first Neoliberal "experiment"). Augusto Pinochet, the invisible "protagonist" of Larrain's masterpiece Post Mortem, appears here briefly in an uncanny cameo. He is in charge of a concentration camp for Communists. He will soon turn the entire country into a concentration camp. God bless America.

  6. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Neruda

  7. Pill Yun's rating of the film Neruda

    If want to play with fictionality, don't be verbose please.

  8. Renton47's rating of the film Neruda

    Larrain is a consummate stylist, and then he keeps going. At once I am both moved and appalled by his technique, the beautiful image rendered in a hurdy gurdy. But it also suits the literary ends on display, a construct of national myth, a biopic with a poet's embellishment. It's still Larrain though so Chile's hero film is as much about the villain, in its way about how both necessitate the other & national identity

  9. hubertguillaud's rating of the film Neruda

    Bel exercice de style, lyrique, excentrique et littéraire, servi par un formidable acteur - Luis Gnecco -, une magnifique photographie... qui dresse du poète et de sa traque un récit légendaire. plus poétique que politique. Décalé, à la hauteur de Neruda, assurément.

  10. Duque's rating of the film Neruda

    Hay algo en todas las películas de Larraín que no me cuadra.

  11. Adam Whybray's rating of the film Neruda

    2.5 stars. Clearly a finely made film, but the combination of elliptical editing, interposed narration and very wide-angle photography made me feel queasy in the same way that handheld shaky-cam seems to make others feel. Sort of like if 'Adaptation' were a meditation on national identity. Perversely Borgesian considering political antipathy. I liked that it seemed to mine pathos for bathos. A curious, loping thing.

  12. Carlos Filipe Freitas's rating of the film Neruda

    “Neruda” is a fascinating piece of cinema, an elegiac and exhilarating chant of refined artistry that reaches the sky not only through the faultless performances by Gnecco and Bernal, but also through an engrossing direction. (4.5 stars)

  13. Cartaphilus's rating of the film Neruda

    Borges o quizás más Cortazar

  14. Murat Erdem's rating of the film Neruda

    Çok yükselemese de toplamından keyif aldım. 3.5/5

  15. fearraigh's rating of the film Neruda

    The narrative framing (in particular making Peluchonneau the narrator) is ingenious and offers a reminder that there was no happy ending in real life for either Neruda or Chile. Larraín is a masterful creator of political drama and here he manages to make a film noir of Neruda's escape, which gets stranger and stranger as it progresses. The second great biopic by Larraín this year.

  16. Alex's rating of the film Neruda

  17. hemachandra's rating of the film Neruda

    NERUDA is an anti-biopic. It is a unique existential take on fiction that actually deconstructs most biopics. Gael García Bernal is a sea of emotions (as always). The period details are incredible. So is the cinematography (great use of JJ Abrams-esque lens flares).

  18. Rūta Švedkauskaitė's rating of the film Neruda

    Lost in the rhymes of poetry and story telling.

  19. FelicityDreamer's rating of the film Neruda

    Odd film but Pablo Larrian is an interesting director and Gael Garcia Bernal ever watchable.

  20. Beril's rating of the film Neruda

    3.5, but four stars for the trans woman singing to and kissing Pablo Neruda at the brothel. One of the most unforgettable characters I have ever seen on screen.

  21. Samuel Andrade's rating of the film Neruda

  22. berat bayer's rating of the film Neruda

    a magical realist neo-noir, directed by one of the most underrated auteurs working today.

  23. Jorge Mourinha's rating of the film Neruda

    Soul mate number 1.
