In 1988, Chilean military dictator Augusto Pinochet, due to international pressure, is forced to call a referendum on his presidency. The country will vote YES or NO to Pinochet extending his rule for another eight years. Opposition leaders for the NO persuade a brash young advertising executive, Rene Saavedra (Gael Garcia Bernal), to spearhead their campaign. With scant resources and under scrutiny by the despot’s minions, Saavedra and his team devise an audacious plan to win the election and set Chile free. [Sony Pictures Classics]

"No succeeds, wonderfully, because it knows how to sell itself. It is cool, witty, technically dazzling in a low-key and convincing way."
- Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"The film becomes a sort of boxing match, getting more intense with each round, building to an exciting finish."
- Omer M. Mozaffar, Chicago Sun-Times
"The essential thrust here is both knowing and undeniable: No is pitched at the pivot point when the image makers were brazen enough to push ideology to the side. Considering how high the stakes were, it’s amazing they almost didn’t get the gig."
- Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"Like "Argo" or "Zero Dark Thirty," the film dramatizes a fertile subject — in this instance, the language of advertising in modern politics."
- Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
"A troubling, exhilarating and ingeniously realized film that’s part stirring political drama and part devilish media satire."
- Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com
