Woody Allen’s annual vintage, “Blue Jasmine,” opens tomorrow. Jeffrey Wells says “that Cate Blanchett‘s fierce, ragged-edge performance as the Ruth Madoff-y Jasmine, the pill-popping, vodka-slurping widow of a disreputable high-finance finagler (Alec Baldwin), burns into your head minutes after the film begins and all but forces you to acknowledge that she’s an instant Best Actress contender.” Blanchett’s previous Oscar was for Best Supporting, so I see no reason why she couldn’t step up in class for this one.
