  23. Neruda (15) Inventive and entertaining drama about the poet and senator Pablo Neruda and his time in exile in post-second world war Chile. Gael Garcia Bernal plays a detective on the hunt for Neruda after the poet has been threatened with impeachment for accusing the government of abandoning communist ideals to appease the US. The two are locked in “a fabulous chase” that’s part myth and part fact, given that the pursuer doesn’t actually exist ... “Sweeping, poignant, bizarre, funny and unique.” - Newsweek
