Loved how unexpected actors kept popping up in true Woody form. Also love that he wasn't actually in the movie. An Oscar nomination for the leading lady for sure. Must see!

I went with my girlfriend, who commented that if she didn't know it was a Woody Allen movie, she would have never guessed. The movie only had a few of the ususal Woody one liners. On the other hand, the script is a gripping story of the breakdown of Jasmine following in the classic tradition of the flawed heroine in a Greek tragedy. Set in San Francisco, the superb cast are amazing. But Ms. Blanchett is most amazing. It is like watching a car crash. I was not able to take my eyes off her when she was on screen. Steve

My friends and I liked this film. We like all: script, directing, cinematography and specially acting. All actors were excellent. The role of Jasmine was the most challenging and Cate Blanchett has done a great job deserving the Oscar. This is why we enjoyed this movie.

Woody's Back

Very good. 8/10. Good pacing, banal plot yet entertaining with all around excellent acting from Blanchett, to Louis C.K., to Sally Hawkins, to Alec Baldwin, to Bobby Cannvale and to Andrew Dice Clay. Entertaining use of retrospectives, music (Blue Moon reprise), allusions to Streetcar. Sane treatment of mental illness, bourgeoise pretension, and the paradox of bad things happening to good people (Ginger is conned out of her life savings by Baldwin). Totally aside—never go to a Woody Allen opening in Manhattan at a day showing when rude seniors let cellphones ring (twice—they were both next to me; one kept TALKING!), eat sandwiches, crunch bags, get in and out for bathroom breaks, and laugh loudly at EVERYTHING throughout the movie, even at moments when things are tragic. We are seniors too.

Blue Jasmine hit close to the bone....

I went to see Blue Jasmine by myself, as I knew I was going to be emotionally engaged to the max...and, I was. I don't care for Alec Baldwin as an individual, but he is a very good actor...he fit the role of a desperate, wobbly "wanna be" who knew no end to the ways that he could combine lies and love, deluding himself as he destroyed his wife, child and ultimately himself...I felt for Jasmine as she had a created herself built upon a house of cards...Woody Allen could always get inside a character better than most, and he has done it again..
