    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Bernal is quite good as the young media specialist - it's always surprising to see how strong a presence he is in his Spanish-language films and how he all-but disappears in his American films. Is it a matter of the roles or the language? The jury is still out. show more

    For anyone fascinated by the political process and the powers of persuasive advertising, No is a resounding yes. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    Like "Argo" or "Zero Dark Thirty," the film dramatizes a fertile subject — in this instance, the language of advertising in modern politics. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    A political drama, a personal drama, a sharp-eyed study of how the media manipulate us from all sides, No reels and ricochets with emotional force. show more

    The result was remarkable, but the story of it, while true to the moment, needed — ironically — much more dynamism. show more

    Anchored by an admirably measured performance from Gael Garcia Bernal as the maverick advertising ace who spearheaded the winning campaign, the quietly impassioned film seems a natural for intelligent arthouse audiences. show more

    The film becomes a sort of boxing match, getting more intense with each round, building to an exciting finish. show more

    No succeeds, wonderfully, because it knows how to sell itself. It is cool, witty, technically dazzling in a low-key and convincing way. show more

    Take the backroom political machinations of "Lincoln," add in the showbiz sleight of hand of "Argo," and you’ll get something like No, a cunning and richly enjoyable combination of high-stakes drama and media satire. show more

    I found the beginning of No to be a little confusing. Because I don\'t know much of Chilean political history, I wasn\'t sure who was with the Yes or No campaign. After about 15 or 20 minutes, then it became clear which was which. Although a little simplistic, it was well made.
