It's brilliantly watchable, if not mesmerising; and brilliantly performed, particularly by Cate Blanchett, who will knock your socks off, and may knock them off so explosively there is every chance you will never retrieve them again.

Blue Jasmine weaponises Blanchett's elegant image against us, showing a character who is trying with all her might to maintain this glamour that is falling down around her. Seriously, she's amazing in this one.

Hawkins is utterly believable and natural as Ginger... While Blanchett's solo scenes of more overt insanity are flashier, I think the scenes between the sisters are more interesting.

As the film flashes back and forth between Jasmine's gilded past and her self-pitying present, Blanchett creates an indelible portrait of a woman who oozes self-delusion, snobbery and a massive sense of entitlement.

The result is a brilliantly funny, immaculately structured film about hysteria and greed. It couldn't go wrong.

In an eponymous lead role owing more than a little to A Streetcar Named Desire's Blanche DuBois, whom she played on stage not so long ago, Blanchett gives an extraordinary performance.

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.

... what a fine way to revere one of Williams' most adapted dramas with a modern take that thrusts its slowly malfunctioning central character into a new situation that only hastens her demise.

Happiness is shown to be elusive in this astute study of aspiration and delusion that leaves you hanging on a melancholy note. If this should prove to be [Woody] Allen's last film, he will have gone out on a high.

Blue Jasmine is Allen's first movie in ages that at least tries to escape the dungeon of the self.
March 17, 2017
While Blue Jasmine is first and foremost a character study and a showcase for Blanchett's impeccable acting skills, it's also a meditation on the idea of what we deserve versus what we think we deserve, and the intersection of standards and entitlement.

"Blue Jasmine" is that rare film that's both a true ensemble piece and a showcase for its lead.

Blue Jasmine could've been more comedic, but Blanchett's heavy performance really gave this story a new life on its own.

There's a reason why Woody Allen's screenplays have been nominated for 15 Academy Awards (R). Comic genius, dramatic wit, sharp observation, great characters. With Blue Jasmine, he has taken effete snobbery to glorious heights.

Andrew Dice Clay holding his own against Cate Blanchett? Now I've seen it all.
August 18, 2014
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.
January 8, 2014
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.
