In the new biopic Jackie, Chilean filmmaker Pablo Larraín and star Natalie Portman portray the complex inner world of the former First Lady in the aftermath of her husband being shot. Much the way understanding the reality of Jackie changes with age, distance, and perspective, the film attempts to locate the tragedy in the intensely personal as well as the reaction felt by the entire country. A lot of heavy lifting in dissecting that duality is done by the score, the latest rousing composition from Mica Levi
With the power of an orchestra behind her, Mica Levi provides a melancholy pulse for Jackie's portrait of a seemingly unknowable historical figure. With the power of an orchestra behind her, Mica Levi provides a melancholy pulse for Jackie’s portrait of a seemingly unknowable historical figure. In director Pablo Larrain’s Jackie, unlike almost any movie made about the assassination of John F. Kennedy, there are no hints of shadowy puppet masters or boogeymen: there is simply the spotlight on one person’s grieving, complicated by the grief of an entire nation.
Mica Levi (/ˈmiːkə ˈliːvi/; born February 1987), also known by her stage name Micachu, is an English singer, songwriter, composer and producer. She is classically trained and since 2008 has released experimental pop music with her band Micachu and the Shapes, including their critically praised debut album Jewellery in 2009. In 2014, Levi branched out into film composing, creating the score for the Jonathan Glazer film Under the Skin.
In "Jackie", Levi's haunting compositions pair with the images on screen, following the devastated First Lady in the immediate aftermath of her husband's assassination. While the film attempts to locate the tragedy in the intensely personal as well as the public reaction, much of the dissecting that duality is done by the score itself, expertly evoking the story and emotions. Amazing music for an amazing film. Mica Levi's use of glissando is mesmerising.
