It's one of the must-sees of this award season.

If Jackie has a conceptual emblem, this is it: messy reality splattering all over a carefully maintained façade.
September 20, 2017
Pale and gaunt, Portman not only looks the part - those vintage costumes are perfect for her - she manages to channel the grief and pain powerfully.

I can testify from firsthand experience that Natalie Portman, in what is certain to be an Oscar-nominated performance, gets it very right.
September 15, 2017
Not your typical biopic, Jackie is an extraordinary exploration of a complex woman navigating her loss, her children's grief and a nation through an unprecedented political and personal tragedy. Don't miss it.

It's an intensity that never lets up - you have to take your moments to stop and remember to inhale and exhale when you can. But that intensity is also to the film's detriment, as at no point does it allow warmth to seep in.

Jackie is too focused to teach history to the young and too invasive to appeal to the old, who watched TV that November.
August 25, 2017
Portman's portrayal is nothing less than amazing, perfectly capturing Jacqueline's intense drive, strength, occasional pettiness, and overwhelming grief.
August 15, 2017
Jackie is a self-serious affair, and despite its dedication to getting under the skin of the former first lady, it remains largely on the surface of things - glossy, sleek, and to a certain extent oddly detached.
August 10, 2017
Pablo Larraín's disappointing Jacqueline Kennedy biopic tries but ultimately fails to reconcile the person with the persona.
June 30, 2017
It tries not to fall into cheap patriotism and for the most part succeeds, but more than anything is the Portman show. [Full review in Spanish]

June 16, 2017
Here's how you know the new film Jackie is working: You move from trying to decide just how credible Natalie Portman's impersonation is to thinking about anything and everything except that.
June 13, 2017
For the most part ... Jackie keeps things clear and preserves its subject's sadness in amber.

A look at a woman who uses the cameras to transmit the version that suits her. Part of Jackie's success lies in not knowing when we are seeing the woman or her creation. [Full review in Spanish]
March 23, 2017
As a whole, the movie is very cold. Director Pablo Larraín shoots much of it in a very controlled, almost Kubrickian way
March 22, 2017
A movie that is as brilliant as it is frustrating.

This is essentially asking us to celebrate the birth of spin in modern politics.

Larraín is an artist, and his skills show throughout, both in his ability to meld so many different sequences into a narrative whole and in how effectively he uses Portman to portray one of the world's most memorable figures.
March 15, 2017
Jackie is a great recreation of a very important time and context, but it didn't stimulated me emotionally or intellectually as much as I would have liked. [Full review in Spanish]

"Jackie" may not be the highest point in the career of the Chilean filmmaker, but there's enough material on the film to avoid going unnoticed. [Full review in Spanish]
