Although the film suffers from complacency, it is still a visual spectacle, full of emotions, great performances, an impressive production design and above all, much intimacy within the pain. [Full review in Spanish]

Not without aesthetic interest, the movie is still a complete mess, weighed down by an expositional script and extremely mannered performances.

Shot beautifully by cinematographer Stephanes Fontaine. The haunting score by composer Mica Levi drives home the grief felt through the entire picture.

Sometimes when people say a film is all about one singular performance, it's meant as a slight. In Jackie, that's the point.
January 9, 2018
And yet, for every element in Jackie that's obvious and overplayed, there are stray, marginal details that manage to resonate, moments during which the pretense falls away and its amorphous stew of ideas finally coalesce.

"Jackie" shows us how Kennedy gave birth to the legend of the modern-day Camelot, but it also captures the ongoing evolution of a star, right before our eyes.

As much as Jackie is about emotional process, it is also about Kennedy's liberation.

... an examination of the character and hher need to purge or repair her pain. [Full review in Spanish]
December 2, 2017
Portman does a tremendous job balancing an accurate impersonation of Mrs. Kennedy's unique voice and mannerisms with a performance that is genuine and fresh.

November 19, 2017
In her portrayal of former First Lady Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman is absolutely superb in Jackie.
November 4, 2017
Director Pablo Larraín's biopic JACKIE is soaked in atmosphere, bleeding emotion, life, death, happiness, sadness and anxiety.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
November 3, 2017
A disturbingly intimate portrayal of Jacqueline Kennedy, 'Jackie' is a film that unmasks her in such a tender yet objective manner; you feel like an intruder who is tailing the first lady of America and a widow in her most trying time.

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

It's easy to recognize some of the shared elements between Jackie and Neruda. But it's still striking to see Larraín tackle such quintessentially American material (and with a largely different crew) and managing to hit the mark so cleanly once again.

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.

September 18, 2017
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.

September 5, 2017
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.
August 28, 2017
Jackie is too focused to teach history to the young and too invasive to appeal to the old, who watched TV that November.
