PABLO LARRAÍN COLLECTION

A filmmaker whose strong visual style is as bold as is his engagement with society past and present, Pablo Larraín has rapidly risen to the top rank of world cinema. After attracting acclaim for his 2005 debut ‘Fuga’ - new to and only on Curzon Home Cinema - about a classical composer driven to madness, ‘Tony Manero’ skilfully explored contemporary Chile life through the eyes of a man obsessed with John Travolta’s anti-hero from ‘Saturday Night Fever’, even down to his wearing that flared white suit. If his subsequent ‘Post-Mortem’ presented an intimate account of the 1973 coup that brought Chilean dictator General Augusto Pinochet to power, the Oscar-nominated ‘No’ detailed the movement that led to his being democratically deposed. Like all of his work, ‘No’ balanced drama with a satirical edge, shifting seamlessly between docudrama and outright farce. ‘The Club’, an account of what might happen to disgraced priests when they are removed from their diocese, is arguably Larraín’s most fully realised film to date – a searing indictment of corruption in the Catholic church and an extraordinarily beautiful drama. It as shot on the Southern Chile coastline, which exudes an eerie uneasiness. Returning once again to history, Larraín’s most recent films explore a more personal side to history. Shot back-to-back, ‘Jackie’ gives us a portrait of Jacqueline Kennedy’s coming to terms with her husband’s death and the wholesale upheaval of her world in the days following JFK’s assassination, while ‘Neruda’ is a playful exploration of the Nobel Prize-winning Chilean poet’s escape from his country in the 1940s. Both films excel at imagining the interior lives of their characters – flawed human beings made immortal by the trappings of fame. As well as directing films, Larraín has producing credits on 'Nasty Baby' and 'Gloria'.
