The List

Director Pablo Larrain clearly wishes neither to sentimentalise the past, nor excoriate it with cynical satire; but this trepidation leaves his film feeling indecisive.

All historical and little drama.

Shooting the entire film on video equipment of the era gives No some visual snap but it is very much a pedestrian, by-the-numbers docu-drama tale, with the emphasis on the former rather than the latter.

The story of it, while true to the moment, needed - ironically - much more dynamism.

Largely a gimmick picture: At all times, it looks like hastily assembled news footage shot on grainy videotape in 1988.

[VIDEO ESSAY] Gael Garcia Bernal's television adman-turned-political-commercial-creator Rene Saavedra is such an ethically ambiguous protagonist that "No" falls completely flat as a piece of agitprop cinema.

No, sadly, is a no-no from Chile's Pablo Larraín.

Screen International

Larrain's bizarre decision to make his film blend in with its extensive passages of archive footage by shooting in U-matic - the default TV production format of the 1980s - makes for an uncomfortable cinematic viewing experience.

An incredible and prescient real life story of how a savvy ad campaign brought about real political change.

It features an enormously appealing lead performance by Gael Garcia Bernal, an impressively even-handed approach, and a dynamic visual gimmick.

Bernal deftly explores the layers of the character's complexity, including his political apathy.

March 28, 2013

A terrific and thrilling drama about the power of hope, of optimism, and of bravery in the face of intimidation, and very real and extreme physical danger.

Despite a lack of in-depth special features, No is still easy to recommend for its fascinating story that tells of a country getting the unique opportunity to decide its own future.

Bernal plays the creative type perfectly. His big eyes always seem to be seeing things that others don't, and through his calm, methodical demeanor, you can sense the wheels turning in his head.

An alluring lead performance from Bernal and a suitably low-key, almost purring soundtrack composed by Carlos Cabezas

It makes the superficial Mad Men seem like, well, a commercial. Buy, buy, buy.

... features a fine performance by Gael García Bernal as young ad exec René Saavedra, who didn't, at first, quite realise what he was in for when he decided to assist in the bringing down of military dictator Augusto Pinochet.

A hearty celebration of hard-earned democracy spiked with just enough of the director's acidly crooked humor to remind us whose house we're in.

"No" is a picture that perches precariously on the cusp of a paradox.
