Copy pictureSlim pickings in terms of extras on this excellent film. Just the original trailer and an 11 minute interview with director Pablo Larrain and star Gael Garcia Bernal. They prove a thoughtful pair, however, and it's particularly interesting to hear Larrain's approach to telling the story of Neruda. "I don't think you can put him in a box," he says. Even without extras, this film is worth owning but more would have been welcome.
