4.0 out of 5 stars Cate Blanchett at her best March 6 2014
I've seen this movie last night, on DVD, twice...one after the other. Most good movies benefit from replays and this one is no exception.

There are a lot of reasons to want to see this movie once and then twice. One is Cate Blanchett which I could see in no matter what, but to see her in an Oscar worthy performance is more than a treat. In fact, the entire cast is tops, the acting in this movie is just terrific.

As for the screenplay – I think that it’s one of the best ever written by Woody Allen. Only him could have thought and made a modern Streetcar Named Desire – a parallel which is present in every scene and action – all of this being a continuous source of delight and fun. I’m sure that Tennessee Williams would have laughed his head off to see his Blanche DuBois as Woody’s Blue Jasmine and would have approved whole heartedly of this funny version of his play.

If you didn’t read or see “A Streetcar Named Desire”, you could go with the film directed by Elia Kazan with Vivien Leigh as Blanche DuBois and Marlon Brando as Stanley Kowalski, Stella’s husband. The entire cast is excellent, but don’t expect to laugh because this is one of the most heart breaking plays of Tennessee.

“Blue Jasmine” is the perfect movie to see on a long flight just as you get to 10 000 feet and you get your first drink…and there is nowhere else to go but far in the sky.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cate Blanchett is great March 11 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Cate Blanchett outdoes herself in Blue Jasmine. Woody Allen's bitter comment on marriage and divorce. No doubt hhis own experience with Mia Farrow inspired his direction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Woody Allen's Late Career Masterpiece March 18 2014
By Celluloidphile TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Everyone seems to acknowledge that this brilliant film is Allen's homage to Tennessee Williams and, in particular, "A Streetcar Named Desire". No matter. It stands perfectly on its own as a cinematic gem and has a dream cast that most directors would die for. I haven't seen an actress get under the skin of a character better than Cate Blanchett does as Jasmine. She is a selfish, snobbish, strong-willed witch of a woman who arrives in San Francisco to live with her lower middle-class half-sister Ginger (brilliantly played by Sally Hawkins). Jasmine can be acerbic and funny, but, as we learn, she is falling apart mentally. Ginger's boyfriend Chili (also a fine performance) sees.through Jasmine in much the same way as Stanley Kowalski in "Streetcar". But, in spite of her haughtiness, and frequent cruelty to those in her sister's blue collar world, we root for Jasmine. Her redemption seems almost possible when she meets a rich self-absorbed State Department type on his way up (Peter Sarsgaard). "Blue Jasmine" is a rich, sophisticated, funny, tragic film. It is a must for any Woody Allen fan and any serious film-goer. Definitely one of 2013's best, and Blanchett rightly received the Best Actress Oscar. Any other choice would have been a real tragedy.

4.0 out of 5 stars After 44 films, Allen continues to evolve Nov. 29 2013
By K. Gordon TOP 50 REVIEWER
Whatever the strengths and weaknesses of Allen's yearly offerings, you have to admire a man that
is in his 70s, has made 44 movies, and yet seems to keep trying to stretch his wings, and style,
while still retaining a very recognizable film-making technique. Allen's films are always clearly
his, yet the tone, feel and structure of the films is so almost always something a little new. In
this case, Allen is going for straight drama, (yes there are a few amusing moments, but in general
this is pretty serious stuff) something he hasn't done since "Match Point". But "Match Point" also
had the structure of being a mystery/thriller, whereas "Blue Jasmine" is a character study, pure
and simple. And in that it's not quite like anything Allen has done in his many, many films. The
earlier dramas like "Interiors" or "Another Woman" were both more stylized and weren't really
about dissecting a single fatally flawed character as if under a microscope.

This grew on me on a second viewing. Some of my problems remained; a lot of the supporting characters
are stereotypes, in spite of being played by wonderful actors, doing all they can to bring them life. But
the great Cate Blanchett, who seems incapable of being less than amazing, somehow manages to bring
reality, humanity and sometimes even pathos to this self-involved borderline crazy and theatrical mess
of a human being.

Whatever the quibbles, this is intelligent, grown up film-making, trying to grapple with big questions of
morality and personal responsibility, and unafraid of being a study of a largely unlikable woman. Allen is
still among the braver and least compromised of U.S. directors, and continues to be worth watching
and supporting.
