TÁR ★★★★

a real Performance movie — one that works so well because it is Blanchett (she fills nearly every scene of the 158-minute runtime, she makes every minute of it compelling; in a career of bests, this one especially blew me away). But it works, to a quieter degree, because of Nina Hoss, who plays Lydia Tár's wife. I loved what Cate said about Nina at the press conference: "The creative conversation was so elevated [...] when [Nina Hoss] came on board, the insight she brought to Sharon's complicity in maintaining the power structure really blew open a section of the film that I don't think I previously thought of before." A fierce, troubling, complicated portrait of a woman in power without succumbing to a neat resolution.
