Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larrain had a very, very big 2016, thanks to the release of not one, not two, but three of his singular works to American audiences. From his bold “The Club” to his ambitious “Neruda” and the lauded “Jackie,” last year spelled the start of a brand new beginning for the talented helmer.

Larrain’s singular “Neruda,” styled as a wholly different kind of biopic (something that will surely sound familiar to fans of “Jackie”) features Gael Garcia Bernal as the “expert policeman” Óscar Peluchonneau, who pursues the celebrated poet Pablo Neruda (Luis Gnecco) after he joins the Communist Party in the late 1940s.

Not simply a biographical look at Neruda, beyond just a cat and mouse game between two unique men, “Neruda” puts creativity and performance at the forefront, and you can get a glimpse of that in our exclusive clip below. As tensions ratchet up and Neruda can no longer hide, Peluchonneau comes searching for him. There’s no escape.

“Neruda” is now available on iTunes and VOD. Check out our exclusive clip below.
