Blue Jasmine (2013)

This time Woody Allen puts away the comedy genre and brings a serious, charming and intense story about this character, Jasmine: a wealthy woman that lost everything when his husband was unmasked as a con man, and that is now recurring to her modest and humble sister, whom she never paid attention to as a rich woman, while entering a serious depression. As usual all the characters are very well written and developed but Cate Blanchett, and I hope you understand the weight of these words, delivers a STELLAR performance. I mean one of the best performances in cinema ever. She carries the movie on her shoulders, and plus everything that surrounds her perfectly fits. Blue Jasmine is an objective, pragmatic movie with no underachieved scenes or dialogs, where Blanchett interprets a woman in a spiral of depression and on the imminence of a nervous breakdown. And she does it so perfectly that it can be argued that maybe Blanchett is the best actress in the world working nowadays. Even if filmed in an American scenario, Blue Jasmine has an european soul, in terms of dialog and picture, and it pays attention to a very modern issue like is stress and social pressure, all deeply working inside the mind of one perfect character. It is indeed a unique piece of work, and probably the best so far in 2013.
