Audience Reviews for Manifesto

    Despite the striking visuals and Cate Blanchett's impressive surrender playing 13 different characters, what we see here must work a lot better as separated gallery pieces instead of put together, since the result is chaotic, confusing, self-indulgent and gets tiring real fast.

    More of an extended art project than a movie. Blanchett appears to be having the time of her life here, delivering some really humorous moments.
