Neruda is not a conventional biopic, hardly surprising given that it’s directed by Pablo Larraín, who is anything but a conventional filmmaker. Instead of a straightforward “here’s what happened” approach, Neruda is full of a cinematic playfulness that most notably includes a central plotline about the famed poet being hunted, Inspector Javert-style, by a relentless cop (Gael García Bernal), a cop that never existed. It’s not the only unconventional touch in Neruda, a film delightfully more concerned with capturing the emotional truth of the poet, not the exact details of his life.
