    Blue Jasmine

    If it's still showing near you I really urge you to see it. A very pleasant, funny, sad, human movie about the post expose of a Mrs. Madoff type woman. Absolutely great acting. Very touching.
    And unlike many earlier Woody Allen movies, no weird ugly old guy lovely young woman scenes.

    I loved this movie too! The acting was amazing, but there were other little touches in the film that I noticed and was really impressed with. For example, without giving anything signifcnt away, Cate Blanchett's entire San Francisco wardrobe consisted of just a few pieces. They were all very NICE pieces, but there were very few of them. Very believable that it woudl be all she'd have left to fit in a suitcase. For my taste, Woody Allen can be hit or miss. This was definitely a BIG hit!

    Cate Blanchett's performance was a MASTER class in acting. I didn't love the movie (I liked it), but she was worth the price of admission. Just amazing. I can't imagine how anyone else will give a better performance this year.

    I don't love Woody Allen, but I don't hate him either. I approach his movies on a case-by-case basis.

    That's exactly how I feel, Critical. My three favorites were probably Crimes and Misdemeanors, Bullets Over Broadway,, and Midnight in Paris.

    Personally the ones I liked best, before this one, were Annie Hall and some of the early silly comedies. Midnight in Paris was kind of B+ to me.
