Instead of my usual Music Monday, I’ve decided to do a Movie Monday instead! This week’s movie is Blue Jasmine. It stars Cate Blanchett, who won an Oscar for her role, and Alec Baldwin. Its acclaim, and the fact that renting it was $1 on iTunes, made me decide to watch it. I’m not usually a movie person so it was a nice change.
The movie is beautifully done and, without giving too much away, is basically about a socialite and her downfall into poverty. The movie is by Woody Allen, which has come with its own fair share of controversy, but I tried to watch it through a purely artistic lens and separate the art from the filmmaker and found it enjoyable.
I’d highly recommend viewing. The movie is only 98 minutes so if you’re like me and can’t stand too long movies, then this is perfect for you! I also liked Allen’s previous movie Midnight In Paris as well, which is also a must see, especially for literary lovers.
