Have you ever seen a movie that makes you feel more alert and aware of life? Your own life or the life of those around you. This kind of did that for me. It’s a genius clash of culture and class. It goes to both places so well and it’s more vibrant when done as opposing environments within the same movie. It deals with alcoholism, mental illness, tragedy and Cate Blanchett is absolutely genius in this role. She should win every possible award. I found myself with my mouth hanging open in shock and also dying laughing at the deadpan delivery of some of the lines.
I like Woody Allen movies when he is not on the screen. They are honest and really make you think and you end up learning something by the time the movie is over. Or at the very least, I find myself somehow inspired by the end. Or moved. Or disturbed in some way.
Blue Jasmine was dry, dark, twisted and hilarious. I loved it. Have you seen it and what did you think? Loved it, hated it? Would love to hear! ♥c
