There are films which have the audience hanging on the edge of their seats and usually they are for their sheer scope and vision they offer the cinematic screen. They do not normally have the truth of America’s dirty laundry being aired in public or the realisation that somewhere in the U.K. or any other country the underworld is not just in bed with law and order but the relationship is consensual and without the use of protection.

Every male director needs his absolute leading lady, every screenwriter needs the one person who can carry a film from start to finish and have the audience utterly absorbed by that person’s story. Woody Allen, long since one of the masters of this art, has perhaps the distinction of being able to bring the very best out of the actors who grace his films. The excellent Diane Keaton stands out in his early works as being a gem of comedy and now as Woody Allen comes to the other side of his long career, the outstanding Cate Blanchett gives one of the finest performances of her life in the superb Blue Jasmine.
