Raves for Blanchett in Blue Jasmine

Coming out this week in limited release is Woody Allen's Blue Jasmine, and it looks like we have our first lock for a Best Actress nomination in Cate Blanchett. The critics are raving about her for the most part, if not as much for the film itself (though the movie is looking decent too, at 85% on Rotten Tomatoes so far). A sample of some of the praise: 

"Want to see great acting, from comic to tragic, and every electrifying stop in between? See Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine." - Rolling Stone

"Sooner or later, a major filmmaker has to give us someone we will never forget. Jasmine is that someone." - The New Republic

"The way Blanchett anchors this superb dramedy is a thing of beauty." - New York Daily News

"Cate Blanchett, who played Blanche on Broadway only a few years ago, give the most complicated and demanding performance of her movie career." - The New Yorker

"Blanchett, her eyes shining, makes Jasmine at once ardent, touching, off-putting and cracked in her grand delusions. It's an awesome mood ring of a performance..." - Entertainment Weekly

And here's Cate on Letterman for the movie, where Dave raves about her as well:
