Woody Allen’s and Cate’s Blue Jasmine

Blue JasmineLast weekend in my spare time I watched Woody Allen’s latest movie called Blue Jasmine starring Cate Blanchett with a great secondary cast. It was mainly Cate’s brilliant performance in what has become my favorite Woody film.  Not only is this a must see movie for anyone wanting an intelligent and deep performance, I also consider it to be one of the most brilliant movies of all times.

I am calling this movie the Woody and Cate movie because without Woody Allen’s script the movie wouldn’t exist, and Cate single highhandedly captivated the audience in understanding her character complex role.  Her performance matches memorable roles such as Oprah Winfrey in the ” Color Purple ” or Meryl Streep in ” Sophie’s Choice “…  However, I believe that it was easier to play Sofia ( Oprah Winfrey ) or Sophie ( Meryl Streep ) because of the dramatic events in the character development.  Cate’s character Jasmine had to reveal her deep psychic turmoil and keep the audience interested.  She knocked it out of the park.

Cate Blanchett”s performance was brilliant and it will be difficult to find a stronger contender for this years Oscar’s.  Woody Allen is back bigger than the 70’s and 80’s and i can’t wait to see him pick up an Oscar for Blue Jasmine.
