"4 OUT OF 4 STARS: HIGHEST RATING!" - Mick LaSalle, SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE
Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"A jaw-dropping work, what we go to the movies hoping to see, and we do.
Blanchett is beyond brilliant, beyond analysis. Her performance is one for the books."
Joe Morgenstern, WALL STREET JOURNAL
"A Revelation. A moral fable about greed and comeuppance..."
"FOUR STARS! Highest rating." - Rex Reed, NEW YORK OBSERVER
"The mystery of the movie is that it depicts a bleak world of pervasive rapacity, deceit and self-delusion, yet keeps us rapt with delight...Gives Ms Blanchett the raw, rare material for a performance of dazzling variety. There are worlds within worlds in this performance."
David Denby, NEW YORKER
"Go immediately and grab the first available seat to the must-see movie of the summer.
Richly chronicled characters, sharp dialogue and that stupendous centerpiece performance by Cate Blanchett are contributing factors in the best summer movie of 2013. It's better than anything you might imagine."
"Startling and brilliant. Cate Blanchett gives the most complicated and demanding performance of her movie career."
