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]

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.

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]
March 13, 2017
While the movie may not sit well with those looking for perhaps a more conventional Hollywood approach to biopics, it is worth seeing for Ms. Portman's outstanding performance alone.

The emotions are muted, suggested in gestures and details, as is the drama. Jackie doesn't deliver the catharsis you might expect from the subject matter. It's more interested in the nuances of character...

The center of the whole film is Jackie and neither the witty narrative nor Larraín's staging would have worked were if not for Natalie Portman's performance. [Full review in Spanish]

What a tense, absorbing, startling film it is. Natalie Portman is simply astounding.
March 7, 2017
The result of the film is in some ways a bit disconcerting, but - beyond certain moments dominated by coldness and calculation - it's still a valuable film. [Full review in Spanish]

Distinct and sensitive, this unique feature offers an emotional and enthralling look at the former first lady.

March 3, 2017
"Jackie" is artful when it needs to be heartful; its overly ambitious visual dramatics are often a glass wall between Portman and the audience. But when she breaks through it, watch out.

The director shows us the mourning as a staging, but doesn't condemn, shows; criticizes and also builds bridges for compassion. [Full review in Spanish]

A film that questions the show within the show, opening up to unpublished meditations and contexts, to continue surviving adversity and internal dismemberment. [Full review in Spanish]

It ended up pushing me further away from the character. In other words, I can appreciate the formal achievements of the film, but what surrounds this calculated and talented woman couldn't interest me less. [Full review in Spanish]
February 27, 2017
Despite some impressive visual flourishes - the slain President's limousine racing to the hospital - the much-hyped Jackie is ultimately a big let-down.

February 27, 2017
Portman does a stellar job of drawing out all the hundred emotions of sadness, grief and hopelessness that one would have thought are humanly possible. Her performance, however, is not as nuanced and varied as in the... Black Swan.

As a tightly controlled exploration of the pageantry of grief, Jackie works very well, even when the stylisation tips into excess and the close-ups begin to feel more intrusive than intimate.
