A magnetic performance by Cate Blanchett and some genuinely funny moments don’t make up for the fact that Blue Jasmine is excruciatingly boring, moronic and aimless.
Woody Allen is one of the oldest talents working in Hollywood today, and also one of the most productive, considering that he is releasing a new film every single year. However, this insane pace at which he seems to be working is obviously working for him since a good majority of his recent films have been positively received – particularly Midnight in Paris, which won him his second Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay. With Blue Jasmine, can Woody Allen once again prove that despite his age and the rapid pace at which we works, he can churn out some truly fantastic work?
