July 29, 2020
In dismissing the tragedy of these characters in ways other than how they relate to Seberg, a movement's systemic oppression is implicitly diminished.
January 18, 2020
When you have Kristen Stewart playing a famously contradictory and motivationally elusive character, you really shouldn't put her in the background and make her wallpaper to your silly FBI story.

There's no visual arc to underline the journey, nothing to say about the mutual exclusivities our culture assigns to arts and politics.
July 13, 2020
The filmmakers didn't think [Jean] Seberg was fascinating enough to show a more well-rounded view of her life, and instead they gave a lot of screen time to show the personal life of a fictional FBI agent.
September 24, 2019
Although there are also slight glimpses of Seberg's idyllic image on screen confronting the turbulence of her private life, the film tiptoes over that. [Full review in Spanish]

Seberg doesn't get Jean Seberg's story quite right.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 1, 2020
Full of would-be riveting moral conundrums, it devolves into cliché agent-with-a-conscience moments and clunky "Conversation"-like paranoia.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

Frankly, it proves Stewart a better actress than Jean Seberg was.
April 12, 2020
The actress's story is one of the saddest in cinema and unfortunately this is not the first time that someone has taken her over as if she were a mere fetish. [Full Review in Spanish]

There are no dazzling left or right turns, no moments of virtuosic showmanship.

There is literally no sense of who Jean Seberg was. No understanding of her vitality and importance. Her passion for acting is given lean brushstrokes.
March 21, 2020
In another case of an interesting true story turned clunky biopic, Sebergis as poorly told as it is forgettable.

Kristen Stewart is phenomenal here, though ultimately not able to save "Seberg" from being a disappointment.

a mixed bag... felt overly conventional and a bit cheesy.
June 11, 2020
Overall, though, this film is little more than a vehicle for Stewart to look gorgeously distraught (which she does well) against an intriguing background story that leaves you wanting to know more.
December 12, 2019
Throughout, the filmmakers occlude the most fascinating and potentially powerful elements of Jean Seberg's history.

Sadly it chickens out on the tough work required and Kristen Stewart is left to do the heavy lifting, but she is only one woman and not even her boundless appeal can buoy something that seems so determined to sink.
March 6, 2020
If Seberg were simply a film about the actress-turned-activist, it might have made for a more enticing work

March 4, 2020
Ultimately, it's only so much window-dressing that can't quite disguise the fact that this movie doesn't actually know what makes its nominal heroine tick.

Seberg could have, should have been so much more. Instead, it's just a pallid introduction.
