Asking the weather with “Tàr”

DIn another life, Todd Field was an actor. In Eyes closed, Stanley Kubrick’s last film, he played the role of a satanic pianist who opens the doors of a secret orgy to Tom Cruise. Now it floats like Kubrick perfume Tar, a hugely ambitious film that makes excellent use of classical music (notably Mahler’s Fifth), an immersion into the complex psychology of a brilliant and twisted, hilarious and dangerous conductor, played by Cate Blanchett with the skill we know he. As with Kubrick, the apparent coldness of the performance, the effect of the unreality of certain sequences forces the viewer to constantly question what he is seeing. The result is a fascinating and magical work that is considered a classic… and which, after the Venice prize and a Golden Globe, should win several Oscars.

At first, imperceptible, the gap between the appearance of this woman and her real age becomes more noticeable after 40 years.
