"Alix lives sloppily. She leaves her cellphone charger in Calais; her credit cards don’t work for lack of funds; and she carries almost no cash. On the train from Calais to Paris for an audition, she makes eye contact with an older, English-speaking stranger (Gabriel Byrne), whose name, Douglas, isn’t revealed until the end of the film. "
From the New York Times review by Stephen Holden
'A moral fable about greed and comeuppance, crimes and misdemeanors, “Blue Jasmine” begins with a socialite brought low and evolves into a tragedy that becomes far greater than her own. '
Pride Stays, Even After the Fall - Cate Blanchett Stars in Woody Allen’s ‘Blue Jasmine’
' Wolverine is worse than Spider-Man 3. It might actually be worse than X-Men: The Last Stand. It’s the kind of movie that’s so terrible that you find yourself genuinely curious as to which drugs the people responsible for this film were taking, and where you might be able to procure some. It’s so bad it comes through the other end and resolves into a sort of shell-shocked hilarity.'

Read to the review to the end - amazing...
'...no better moment to establish the tone of this movie than a six-year-old in Wolverine’s traditional berserker-rage pose, arms outstretched, claws out, yelling “NOOOOOOOOOO!” at the sky.'
