A bald and brilliant mashup of Tennessee Williams’s A Streetcar Named Desire and the Bernie Madoff scandal, Blue Jasmine is a brainy, reference-heavy drama that’s also Woody Allen’s best movie in 20 years. Drawing buckets of tension and pathos from both its sources, the dreamily structured Jasmine never stops exploding with squirmy, messy, often hilarious life, thanks in tremendous part to the actors, led by a relentlessly great Cate Blachett, with key support provided by Sally Hawkins, Louis C.K., and, uh, Andrew Dice Clay, who might very well find himself nominated for an Oscar.
