I called it folks. "Jackie" is too enigmatic a film for awards. Yesterday I wrote and explained why I took it out of my Best Picture contenders: "Jackie" is now on the outside looking in, the reception it has garnered thus far has been positive, but with many people puzzled by its enigmatic narrative structure." Good god does it fell great to be right. But, really, I doubt it'll go further than a much deserve nomination for Natalie Portman as Best Actress. Of course, I loved the movie and said the following in my review dated 11.28.16: "Portman’s performance is a high-wire act of intrigue. She never fully reveals the exact reasons for some of Jackie’s behavior and though we can never truly know if there was manipulation involved with her grief, this is hinted at. In a way Larrain and Portman are playing with the audience with an immaculate mix of enigma, grief and cynicism. It’s an artfully crafted thing, this “Jackie."
