Joe's Review of Blue Jasmine
Cate Blanchette's performance as wife of a Bernie Madoff-type New York investment advisor who starts her life anew in San Francisco is bound to make her an early Oscar favorite for Best Actress. It's definitely the best I've seen this year. Woody Allen's writing is still crisp. The film is funny, sad and just a bit disturbing. Great supporting cast as well, including a surprisingly good Andrew Dice Clay. Totally worth seeing.
