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

  • 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.

  • A propulsive drama set in New York and San Francisco about a woman's self-destruction as a result of her inability to look truthfully at her own life. It's a serious warning, brutal even.

  • A career-best Cate Blanchett dazzles in Woody Allen's heartbreaking missive.

  • The exquisite Blanchett amazes, bringing brittleness and vulnerability to a woman on the edge.

    An underrated and talky piece from Woody Allen, Cate Blanchett blooms in one of the best performances of her entire career and shines along-side Sally Hawkins and Andrew Dice Clay, the film also boasts an exceedingly funny and intelligent script and often gorgeous visuals, the film refuses to acknowledge the madness in Jasmine and instead concerntrates on the woman in the madness in Jasmine. A really fun film.

    A grim look at how a person can go from feeling a billion bucks to a drowned harrassed rat. Blue Jasmine is a hilarious black comedy about a run down former housewife struggling to adjust to her new life. Blanchett delivered an amazing performance, the script was great and the drama were dynamic, a good comeback for Woody Allen overall.

    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..

    I'm going to label this as a female version of Falling Down.
