Critic Reviews for Blue Jasmine

All Critics (206) | Top Critics (53)

Woody Allen, whether you love him or hate him, has always had a way with women. He somehow gets the very best out of his leading ladies. As Jasmine (nee Jeanette), Cate Blanchett is a glorious trainwreck, and it's hard to look away.

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

December 17, 2013 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…

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

December 17, 2013 | Full Review…

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.

November 4, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

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.

September 17, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

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

Audience Reviews for Blue Jasmine

At the head of a great cast, Cate Blanchett deserved all the awards that she got for her fantastic performance in this thought-provoking character study, given how she is able to inspire our most profound sympathy as a pitiful woman who we would hardly want to have around us in real life.

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 !

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..
