1. John Powers on Gael Garcia Bernal’s character in the Oscar-nominated Chilean film, No:

Its unheroic hero is a fictionalized young ad man, Rene Saavedra, well played by the charismatic Mexican actor Gael Garcia Bernal. Soulful yet politically unengaged, Rene comes up with a marketing campaign designed to get ordinary folks to vote “No” — thereby removing Pinochet.
