Consensus: Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine finds the director in peak late-period form -- and benefiting from a superb cast led by Cate Blanchett.

Alexandra MacAaron
Women's Voices for Change

Woody Allen, whether you love him or hate him, has always had a way with women. He somehow gets the very best out of his leading ladies. As Jasmine (nee Jeanette), Cate Blanchett is a glorious trainwreck, and it's hard to look away.

Globe and Mail

A sharply observed, post-economic crash comedy-drama that boasts a formidable performance by Cate Blanchett and addresses such pertinent real-world concerns as class, gender and corporate criminality in urban America.

Lynden Barber

In an eponymous lead role owing more than a little to A Streetcar Named Desire's Blanche DuBois, whom she played on stage not so long ago, Blanchett gives an extraordinary performance.

Lives constructed on pretense can only stand for so long. Watching them collapse is appalling but undeniably entertaining.

Time Out

You have to dig deep in Allen's back catalogue to find a single performance as affecting and well-judged as the one Cate Blanchett delivers.

... what a fine way to revere one of Williams' most adapted dramas with a modern take that thrusts its slowly malfunctioning central character into a new situation that only hastens her demise.

There is all this talent -- and so little reason for it in Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine.

James Berardinelli

It's narratively uneven but the occasional lapses of focus are rescued by Cate Blanchett's riveting lead performance.

Metro (UK)

Happiness is shown to be elusive in this astute study of aspiration and delusion that leaves you hanging on a melancholy note. If this should prove to be [Woody] Allen's last film, he will have gone out on a high.
