Nice idea but pretty dire result. - Manifesto review by TE

Spoiler Alert
04/05/2018

This film shows the value of reading art manifestos on the page, rather than trying to engage with them amidst a distracting concoction of images and accents.

Cate Blanchett is a fine actor, but her one-woman show here is at times risible, particularly the various accents she has to adopt.

Even the occasional sequences of stunning visuals are not enough to sustain interest.

Manifestos are fascinating documents, but they can often come across as dated and pompous. Lumping them together in a kind of extended pop video does them no favours.

Pretentious - Manifesto review by LS

Spoiler Alert

I was looking forward to this film because I love Cate Blanchett and it sounded like an interesting concept.

However I found the monologues dull and didn't think Cate delivered them well. Her accents were all over the place. Needless to say, I didn't make it to the end.
