With slow-burning, stomach-squeezing panic Rebecca Hall delivers a superb performance in Christine as the real-life American television reporter Christine Chubbuck.
January 26, 2017
It is a dark, hypnotic, unsettling experience.
January 26, 2017
A disturbing, honest portrait of female neurosis and depression.
January 26, 2017
The film's compassion towards Chubbuck emanates from a star turn of huge sensitivity: Hall's version of her is a crumbling person, not a concept.

Rebecca Hall gives an excellent performance as Christine, one that captures the character's mix of insecurity and ambition, her extreme reticence and her desire to be liked.
November 18, 2016
Rebecca Hall gives one of the great performances of the year as the title character in Christine, an intense, stomach-churning, unblinking drama.
November 4, 2016
Something of a tour de force for star Rebecca Hall who, in keeping with the film's approach, does so much while seeming to do so little.
November 3, 2016
You'll need a shield to help deflect all the irony director Antonio Campos and screenwriter Craig Shilowich throw before the camera.
November 3, 2016
A gripping, often agonizing character study with a tour de force performance by Rebecca Hall.

"Christine" is based on true events, and I suspect it's all the more powerful if you don't know what happens at the end. I did, but the film still gripped me.
October 27, 2016
Rich in dramatic detail and psychological insight, the film approaches its protagonist with genuine concern.
October 24, 2016
The narrow scope and narrow determinism of the action in "Christine" is unfortunately matched by the narrow-albeit immensely skillful and committed-acting that Campos elicits from Hall.
October 20, 2016
By turns coolly observed and disquietingly compassionate - qualities that also describe Rebecca Hall's brilliant central performance - the movie drifts alongside its subject, Charon-like, through the hell of her last weeks.
October 20, 2016
A great performance does not necessarily make for great tragedy, and "Christine" remains mired in the minutiae of its portrait of a doomed, bitter young woman.
October 20, 2016
Grim, timely, but not quite fully thought through ...
October 20, 2016
Christine has every chance of going wrong-of courting, wittingly or not, the interest of gruesome curiosity seekers. But this is a case where one performance can make all the difference-and Rebecca Hall's does.
October 19, 2016
The movie gets to you: It's absorbing and uncomfortable at the same time, as if it were giving you a glimpse at the unknowable.
October 17, 2016
Striding through this, and commanding almost every scene, is Rebecca Hall, who earns our sympathy, as the best actors do, by steeling herself not to plead for it.
October 14, 2016
There are questions of exploitation that nag throughout, as well as a queasy feeling that we the audience are participating in exploiting this troubled woman all over again.
October 14, 2016
Hall gives us Chubbuck in all her vehement contradictoriness.
