Reviews:
The mystery of the movie as a whole is that it depicts a bleak world of pervasive rapacity, deceit and self-delusion, yet keeps us rapt with delight....A brilliantly effective star vehicle." - 07/26/2013 Wall Street Journal


"[Blanchett's] performance is tinged with haughtiness, dry humor and madness. It's one of the year's finest, most complex portrayals, in one of Allen's best films in years." - 08/02/2013 USA Today


"[Blanchett] dives into the showcase role of a humbled society wife and knocks it out of the park. Woody Allen, six decades into his career, is still capable of writing and directing one of the liveliest, funniest and sharpest movies of the year." - 08/04/2013 Chicago Sun-Times


3 stars out of 4 -- "Cate Blanchett delivers a bravura star turn as the emotionally frayed title character in BLUE JASMINE." - 08/02/2013 Washington Post


3 stars out of 4 -- "Blanchett fabulously goes above and beyond her duties as the wilting faux flower of the title....The actress is a tour-de-force tinted-blonde tornado that elevates her every encounter with a member of the movie's estimable ensemble." - 07/26/2013 RogerEbert.com


"[T]he dramatic unruliness makes BLUE JASMINE nervy and vital in a way fans might have suspected Allen no longer had in him." - 07/25/2013 A.V. Club


"[This is Allen's] most sustained, satisfying and resonant film since MATCH POINT." - 07/31/2013 New York Times


"Want to see great acting, from comic to tragic and every electrifying stop in between? See Cate Blanchett in BLUE JASMINE." - 08/01/2013 Rolling Stone


"Cate Blanchett plays a neurotic Woody Allen heroine for the ages in this serious-minded but ruefully funny work." - 07/17/2013 Variety


"[P]owerful and enthralling....The greatness of Blanchett's acting is that she shows you how madness doesn't just destroy Jasmine but, in some terrible way, fulfills her destiny." -- Grade: A - 08/01/2013 Entertainment Weekly


"[T]his often humorous drama lands firmly in the plus column among the Woodman's recent works, with Blanchett's tour de force making this a must-see..." - 07/17/2013 Hollywood Reporter


4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t’s Allen’s most dramatic outing since 1992’s HUSBANDS AND WIVES, with the humour pulsing softly and steadily beneath the more urgent throb of loneliness, co-dependency and financial crisis." - 09/20/2013 Total Film


5 stars out of 5 -- "Allen's best film in years, astute, humane and shot through with keen observations..." - 09/20/2013 Empire


"[I]t makes extremely good use of two stand-up comics: Louis CK, as a sound engineer who seduces Ginger, and Andrew Dice Clay, as Ginger’s ex-husband." - 09/20/2013 Uncut
