Blue Jasmine

‘Blue Jasmine’, Happy Allen Fans

Woody Allen has made a name for himself in film by writing and directing quirky comedies, that center on the neurotic behavior of his protagonists. Often, Allen was the neurotic protagonist (most famously in the multi-Oscar winning Annie Hall), but in recent years he has either kept himself to supporting roles or just behind the camera. With Blue Jasmine, we see a whole new kind of neurosis in the character of Jasmine (Cate Blanchett), a performance that does not call for classic Allen quirk, but a sad and heartbreaking descent into deluded madness.
