Lives constructed on pretense can only stand for so long. Watching them collapse is appalling but undeniably entertaining.

A sharply observed, post-economic crash comedy-drama that boasts a formidable performance by Cate Blanchett and addresses such pertinent real-world concerns as class, gender and corporate criminality in urban America.

You have to dig deep in Allen's back catalogue to find a single performance as affecting and well-judged as the one Cate Blanchett delivers.

It's narratively uneven but the occasional lapses of focus are rescued by Cate Blanchett's riveting lead performance.

This also benefits from one of the strongest casts he's assembled in years: Cate Blanchett is exceptional in the lead, and there are strong supporting turns from Alec Baldwin, Sally Hawkins, and (in a surprise dramatic turn) Andrew Dice Clay.

Jasmine resembles one of those '50s wives -- widowed or dumped -- who find themselves with nary a skill to survive, or at least not in the manner they'd grown accustomed.

Blanchett is impressive as a woman constantly teetering on the edge of collapse; there's a perpetual sense something tragic simmers beneath her constructed facade.

Jasmine is a cautionary virago for anyone who's ever witnessed a friend unknowingly muttering just within earshot, just within the frame of reality. Jasmine's headlong fall is fearsome, lugubrious, and ultimately, exasperating.

The film itself doesn't match Blanchett's stunning commitment -- which is a pity, because in various ways it is one of Allen's more unusual works in years.

Darkly funny, often in a laugh out loud, self-deprecating way, but it also doubles as a cautionary tale.

Blue Jasmine captures a manic and delusional woman attempting to rebuild herself after a prodigal life she received, but never deserved.

Blanchett's performance is fascinating. She's an Ingmar Bergman figure yanked straight out of Tennessee Williams.

Jasmine is a good movie, one of Allen's best in years, but the draw here is Blanchett, whose performance takes an off-putting character and makes her surprisingly, um ... not quite on-putting, but riveting.

Allen creates a clever and intriguing intersection of lives, relationships and anxieties, all balancing on the ready-to-pop balloon of Jasmine's psychoses.

Blanchett embraces the Blanche DuBois-like nature of the character yet manages to reach Vivien Leigh-like levels of histrionics in much more subtle and naturalistic ways.

December 17, 2013 Full Review Source: Scotsman

In its basic situation can be heard the distant clang of A Streetcar Named Desire, though it's neither pastiche nor reprise, just a quietly respectful tribute.

December 17, 2013 Full Review Source: Independent

[Woody Allen's] spin through Tennessee Williams territory, where he has never gone before, seems fresh in the hands of an expert cast.

The whole is less than the sum of its parts, though some parts (especially Blanchett's performance) are well worth watching.

There is all this talent -- and so little reason for it in Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine.

Blanchett, wielding a stiff cocktail in one hand and a bottle of anti-anxiety pills in the other, gives her character a skillful shove from neurotic towards psychotic.

I can't credit Allen overmuch for acknowledging, at this late date, a culture of criminality too blatant to ignore; but I admire, and am moved by, his decision to look at his new subject obliquely, through the experience of an enabler of the crimes.

The movie is a near-perfect capture of a woman on the edge of a nervous breakdown without going off the deep end into a farce.

Insightful, squirmingly funny and boasting an absolutely unmissable performance from first time Allen collaborator Cate Blanchett.

Audience Reviews for Blue Jasmine

Surprisingly good drama from Woody Allen about post-traumatic life that make an ex-housewife struggle to pick up the pieces about the life that she had before.. A remarkably strong performance from Cate Blanchett, as she already an Oscar winner before, no doubt that she portraying the leading role in this movie really well.. Truly deserve all the credit and the awards awarded to her.. While Sally Hawkins' performance in this movie is some scene-stealer and for me she did it..

Couldn't ignore a Woody Allen flick that's applauded this much. Apparently, to each, their own. The characters felt relatively realistic, thanks to the performances, but that wasn't enough. The story could have used some humor than so much sarcasm. After a point, it gets repetitive and begins to irritate. Too low on story and entertainment to be rated more than 0.5/5.

Woody Allen's movies have never appealed to me, as they have always come across as a tiny bit artsy and often unsatisfactory.
For me it is Blanchett that makes this depressingly sad movie enjoyable. Blanchett is phenomenal and although her ditsy character should make you want to hate her, you can't help but feel sorry for her and feel she is slightly misunderstood!
The mental instability of the character is brilliantly portrayed by the exceptionally talented Blanchett however that's where the good points stop! Blanchett is amazing and although it is an interesting drama you can't help but feel so unsatisfied and angry about the ending. Yes it pretty much ends the way it started and yes its good that the movie didn't end with a typical happy hollywood spin but it would have been nice for some happiness in this dark and depressingly beautiful drama. There really is no light at the end of this dark tunnel !
