Lydia Tár has fallen on her face! When I was in 3rd grade I really wanted to play the cello but when I went to sign up for after school music classes, I realized I didn’t know what the cello was called and was too embarrassed to say, so I accidentally played viola for a year instead.
So I basically get what’s going on here…
When Tár touched Olga’s face in front of Sharon I went “aiiiyaaa”. When Lydia was Linda I almost choked on a snow cap (superior yet noisy movie snack)
Fran wrote in her great review for gawker about how the film itself is like a symphony. I feel like watching with an audience only reinforces that, everyone's little chuckles and gasps at thr tiniest moments of Tár being Tár, that’s music baby!
This movie is an absolutely gorgeous series of self owns and Cate Blanchett is so good at knowing how she can read, I’m really like, that’s acting maestro right there. How can someone taking their hair out of a ponytail be so funny? The movie asks you to pay attention to her just like she would to the music and it’s such a gift. Now I’m getting corny but it’s true. Could watch for 3 more hours tbh
