Sheldon's Review of No

This was surprisingly compelling. It follows the campaign to vote "No" on the 1988 referendum in Chile that would have allowed Augusto Pinochet to continue in office. I liked it a lot more than I expected to. It's shot in a unique technical style, making it look like it could have been made with 1980s technology (from what I understand it wasn't; it just looks that way, but it is clearly a deliberate design choice). Well acted, well scripted, well directed. It's quite good and easy to see why it's nominated for Best Foreign Language Film.
