Neruda ★★★★

Even in the moments when this doesn't quite work, Pablo Larrain's direction excels. Neruda demonstrates Larrain's penchant for untraditional biopics in a way that is fresh and desperately needed. Similar to Jackie, this film concentrated on the more abstract elements of its subject's life, focusing on the intersection between art and politics, truth and fiction. Gael Garcia Bernal is great (of course), but it's Larrain's talent for capturing and crafting a story with the camera that makes this special. There were three particular sequences in this that left me in awe.

The Q&A with Pablo & Gael after was nice and they've definitely seen each other's dicks.
