Pablo Larrain’s ‘Neruda’ Starring Gael Garcia Bernal Is A Thrilling Love...

A surpassingly strange chimera of visual magic and verbal delight, leavened with humor both bawdy and bittersweet, Pablo Larrain‘s “Neruda” takes the surname of its subject as its title, but in absolutely no other way under the sun does it resemble a standard biopic.

In one of the biggest snubs in Oscar history, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced the nine-short listed films for the 2017 Foreign Language Film Oscar and Paul Verhoeven’s “Elle” was not on the list.

Simply put, filmmaker Pablo Larrain has had a terrific 2016.

Leave it to Pablo Larrain to tackle two titanic true life figures and handle them in completely different ways, with both pictures resulting in awards season contention. Of course, plenty of attention is already falling on “Jackie” starring Natalie Portman, the director’s portrait of the former First Lady during her most trying days. However, there’s […]

The 50 Most Anticipated Films Of The Fall Season

Let’s face it, 2016 has so far been sort of a crappy year for movies. It’s been a particularly bad summer blockbuster season, with almost everything coming up short.
