Opening in just 6 theaters, Woody Allen's latest film, Blue Jasmine, is receiving some of his best reviews ever, thanks mostly to the performance of Cate Blanchett. Her character, Jasmine French, writes Manohla Dargis in the New York Times, is brilliantly brought to quivering life by Ms. Blanchett in Allen's most sustained, satisfying and resonant film since Match Point. Blanchett, writes David Denby in The New Yorker, gives the most complicated and demanding performance of her movie career in what he regards as the strongest, most resonant movie Woody Allen has made in years. That comment is echoed by Claudia Puig in USA Today, who says of Blanchett's performance: It's one of the year's finest, most complex portrayals, in one of Allen's best films in years. Left-handed praise comes from Rex Reed in the New York Observer. I do not consider Jasmine a typical Woody Allen comedy., he writes. It's better than anything you might imagine.
