This trailer undeniably asserts, simply by the cutscenes it includes, that this could be an all-time great performance of Blanchett’s career. It has no words on how it is an epic of part character designed for this elite performer to show us what she has. As someone who saw the film at the Venice Film Festival earlier this month, I can say that she completely lives up to the expectations this trailer gives you. In fact, I would even go as far as to say that this performance is probably better than her incredible transformation in the 2015 horror drama “Carol”, which was widely praised. is the best of her career.
I’m a “Carol” evangelist and purist, there’s no denying it, but what she does with Lydia Tár – fictitious by the way – is completely different from her work in heartbreaking romantic movie. Carol and Tár look at life from two different angles, with two different worldviews, spaces and approaches to problems. Even further, they exist in two different eras, navigating two different norms. Playing Tár gives Blanchett the permission she needs to open the eggshell that is her raging, uncontrollable flaw and give it to us in abundance. And it works, almost too well – you’re cheering for her even in times when you probably shouldn’t.
“Tár” also stars Nina Hoss, Noémie Merlant, Sophie Kauer, Mark Strong, and Andris Davis. Field produced with Alexandra Milchan and Scott Lambert. This is Field’s first film since his 2006 TV series “Little Children”.
After its worldwide premiere in Venice in September, “Tár” will open in US theaters on October 7, 2022.
