Critic Reviews for Manifesto
Blanchett has no fear as a performer, and she has such enormous appetite for acting that she rips into each of the characters she is playing as if she were hungrily stripping meat off of chicken legs and then hurling the bones over her shoulder.
The closest a film performance may ever come to capturing the spirit of live theater.
The film's necessary linearity destroys that aspect of the installation, cutting back and forth between the various characters and feeling far more like a lecture than an experience.
"Manifesto" may not adhere to any conventional narrative structure, but it's compulsively watchable all the same ...
Difficult to understand and impossible to codify, Manifesto is a stirring post-modern rumination on artistic meaning filtered through the persona and performance of Cate Blanchett.
