Saw Woody Allen’s #BlueJasmine. We could also call it Cate Blanchett’s Blue Jasmine. Incredible!

#BlueJasmine. Sally Hawkins, contrasting, is pretty much on par. Also, credit & kudos to Allen for digging up …

… the really affecting Andrew Dice Clay! There’s more to people than we think, isn’t there?

#BlueJasmine. Much to admire here. Pretty irritating! Leaves me w’ an I. Bergman-like question. Is Allen really interested in …

… this woman’s life? Or is this so much well-spoken Strindbergian misogyny?

#BlueJasmine. Blanchett’s character crosses T. Williams’ Blanche Dubois & Cassavettes/Rowlands’ Mabel Longhetti …

… Creditable precedents! Not quite in the same league.
