The key to the uncertainty that Christine the movie and Christine the character produce is Rebecca Hall's excellent work -- one of her best performances. [Full Review in Spanish]
April 28, 2020
Christine captures the period and the mood of the country quite faithfully, without getting lost in '70s kitch. But nothing about the film quite prepared me for the depth of the compassion and pain that Rebecca Hall brings to her role.

The movie's biggest asset is a powerhouse performance by Rebecca Hall, who builds a sympathetic character without betraying the integrity of the person who inspired it.

Christine is an emotionally persuasive portrait of a human come undone, led expressively and memorably by Rebecca Hall.
August 6, 2019
It may be written, it may be acted, directed and edited, but there is an unmistakable truth behind the camera.
April 20, 2019
Hall convincingly charts her character's winding road of descent into madness and despair.
April 2, 2019
As you might guess this is a pretty grim, tragic film and I appreciate that writer Craig Shilowich did not add an ounce of sentimentality to the events of Christine.

Everyone's efforts would be lost if not for Rebecca Hall's lived-in portrayal of Chubbuck. Hers is a performance of subtle mannerisms.

It's a surprise with this subject matter, but Antonio Campos' Christine is deliciously witty.
February 8, 2019
This is my first experience with Campos and I'm completely taken aback by his formal IQ. Every frame is richly composed, informed by careful decisions that reflect the self-doubt of his characters

takes a look at infamous Sarasota reporter Christine Chubbuck and her struggle with depression in sad, sanguine, cinematic streaks.
August 22, 2018
Hall's brilliantly detailed performance reveals a woman being torn apart by repression and disappointment, as if her intestines had been replaced by barbed wire.
August 14, 2018
Although Rebecca Hall delivers a strong performance, Christine doesn't quite pull you in.
August 9, 2018
The sense of standing in a maze, with every exit being closed off, permeates the film.
June 13, 2018
Three-dimensional, even warm, a feat considering its incredibly violent and theatrical central plot point.
January 26, 2018
Uncomfortably bleak, director Antonio Campos scrapes away at the agonizing details of Chubbuck's anguish stemming from her stunted personal and professional life to reveal a tortured soul.
January 25, 2018
... we feel for a moment that this film looks at us, knows us, takes into account our presence on the other side of the mirror. [Full review in Spanish]
November 20, 2017
Campos' film is a clinging, yearning look at one woman's mad desire for acceptance.
October 17, 2017
Rebecca Hall has the misfortune to be extremely good in a film that always feels somewhat exploitative and too miserable to be a rewarding watch.
September 28, 2017
A perfect exemplar of a bad good movie, Antonio Campos' Christine traps (an excellent) Rebecca Hall in a series of impeccably composed frames as the famously ill-fated Sarasota local news anchor Christine Chubbuck.
