Critic Reviews for Manifesto
You may not know much about 20th-century art manifestos, but you'll know what you like with Cate Blanchett's stunning turn as 13 wildly diverse characters who explore them in Manifesto.
A kind of monotony sets in, as if we're being compelled to hear the effusions of a bright adolescent in an endlessly defiant mood.
"Manifesto" isn't for everybody. But even if you're unfamiliar with Dada and couldn't care less about Fluxus, it's a treat to watch an actress at the top of her game ...
Some bits are less effective and/or more obscure, but few last long enough to wear out their welcome, thanks to writer-director Julian Rosefeldt's clever, complementary visuals and to his affectionate, interested approach - even when he's poking fun.
Whatever Rosefeldt intended, "Manifesto" doesn't quite set forth a manifesto of its own. But it's a blast of fresh air.
