Todd Field is doing some really daring stuff here and I was thrilled by all of it. It's a fabulously nuanced meditation on cancel culture (both as it pertains currently and how we approach it retrospectively for figures of the past); it asks the right questions, raises intriguing points, and gives absolutely no answers. And Cate Blanchett is fantastic in a very tricky lead role that brilliantly captures the essence of the difficult, problematic, but engrossing genius.

Some pretty masterful cinema in my opinion. I’m still a bit perplexed about some of the imagery, but that’ll make rewatches all the better. Blanchett is reliably stellar and the script, for me anyway, dug just deep enough in to everything it wanted to say and present. It’s so beautifully made and acted that I can’t not recommend it. Also, Hildur Guðnadóttir‘s score was legitimately amazing. Don’t listen to the reception. Approach it as blindly as possible. Excellent character piece.

Both Blanchett's titular role and her performance are powerful in this phenomenal character piece. Despite remarkable economy and precision Field's movie is as slippery as a well-oiled eel, turning from satire to nuanced examination of #metoo cancel culture until it crescendos in a nightmarish final act that makes subsequent viewings even more rewarding. I love that Field, like Bach (at least according to Tár), knows that it's the questions that engage us. We want to come to our own conclusions.

Field’s style is of the art-house maestro, dissecting the world’s arrogance through a virtually plotless coldness. Only the second layer reveals a character that is both overdetermined and vague, held together by Blanchett’s histrionic act that would be more at home in a psycho-horror film. She can’t even do an interview like a human - each gesture is an exclamation mark of self-conscious haughtiness. Is the film then an extended joke on her? A satire on modernity trying to achieve meaning?

I watched the trailer before I saw this, and immediately googled Tar to see who the real person was like and how close Blanchett came to her. Was legit shocked to see she wasn't real. Then I watched the movie knowing she wasn't real -- and I'm not easily susceptible -- and I still ended that movie thinking she was a real person. This was a towering performance from Blanchett. Will be studied and referenced for decades. And if you pay attention to the credits, she actually conducted!

TÁR is many things: a towering star vehicle, an operatic tragedy, a thought-provoking examination of power dynamics, a Rorschach test on cultural toxicity. But damn if it doesn't hit like a Hitchcockian thriller set in the rarefied world of European music snobs.

Some (e.g., R. Brody) think it’s a celebration of its protagonist amounting to a “regressive” attack on “cancel culture”; others (e.g., A. White) take it as a “histrionic wingding” from a diametrically opposed perspective: evidence that the filmmakers are doing something right? My prevailing attitude towards Blanchett is that her mannered style is an unconvincing form of showing off, but this is precisely what the director takes advantage of here, and the results are singularly impressive.

This is a slow burn, but so masterfully done and incredibly acted by Cate Blanchett. The film is a fascinating investigation of the power that comes with fame, but done in such a slowly building way that by the final act, you wouldn't believe Lydia Tar isn't a real person. Presented bluntly and raising some often frustrating questions about fame and assumption, Tar is a powerful and unflinching portrait that should be well in the Oscar mix this year.

A wickedly funny examination of power, unchecked behaviour, and the insane level of pretentious nonsense in the classical music world. Blanchett gives one of her best performances ever, which is really saying something, and the examination of our current social climate is fair and thoughtful. It’s all backed up by an excellent score and perfect framing. Immediately on the short list for best of the decade.

A quiet stunner in many respects, especially thanks to a galvanising, possibly career-best performance by Blanchett, completely embodying the prickly but brilliant Tár, and acting as perfect focus point for a pensive, deliberately paced examination of “cancel culture” and various abuses of power, especially in the arts. Makes its points with a daring grace and subtlety, while refusing to vilify its central character. Probably needs a second viewing to properly bed in.

Upon rewatch, so much of Tár comes into sharp focus. It transforms from good to truly great, adding layer upon layer upon layer to it’s already rich subtext. Todd Field has crafted a masterpiece that allows the viewer to sink their teeth deep into the psyche of powerful people who do not care one bit who they must cast aside like garbage to maintain status. Cate Blanchett gives the performance of the year as Lydia, able to progressively show us cracks in her façade as the film moves along.

A very good film, but takes a bit too long to get going. Very timely subject matter with regards to cancel culture and the Me Too movement; I liked that the gender of the performers highlights that it is often power imbalances rather than gender itself that is the culprit in these situations. Blanchett is good, but I think she's been better. It comments on many things, but I'm not entirely sure it has much new to say. Still, it's very well done and mostly enjoyable, especially toward the end.

Blanchett's performance definitely deserves the awards buzz and this film does make for a compelling character study. Still, I don't know that there's anything much here beyond the study of the fictional Lydia Tár. Is there anything novel here being said about cancel culture, about exploitative power dynamics, about queer identity, about music, or about the artistic process?

Unfortunately the script doesn’t live up to the quality of Blanchett’s performance and the strikingly beautiful cinematography. Disappointing overall. Haneke has done this type of film better several times, and even a Jonathan Glazer would have given it more punch. Ironically, I think its biggest flaw is not achieving its own creative intentions.

The score may be subject to change; I've yet to make up my mind about 'Tár'. It is a movie of two halves, of which the first is a fascinating, almost anecdotal introduction to the world of conducting. When the plot is introduced in the second half the movie starts feeling slightly uneven, though the themes that are revealed are relevant and important. For those interested in acting Cate Blanchett’s performance is a must see. 'Tár' has my cautious recommendation - for now.

Love Blanchett, but this move has even more going for it than her wonderful performance. And then even when we put aside the great cinematography, it opens a dialogue about what it means to be, at the same time, a brilliant artist and an erroneous human living under the omnipresent public eye in times of cancel culture, woke righteousness, and hand-washing.

I'm clearly in the minority here but as a fan of Little Children, Field may have his taken his deliberate, rigid style too far beyond the point of naturalness and spontaneity. Blanchett's acting is a direct result of said approach, a clearly rehearsed, overly methodical performance that pales in comparison to her past roles. It also telegraphs its obvious point too early on only to verbalise it explicitly an hour later. Watch The Assistant instead.

Of all the films I expected of Tár, the last was a giallo hiding in sheep’s clothing. Lydia is a piece of shit but there’s something even beyond Blanchett’s performance that moves us to compassion. There’s a continual violation, and retribution, propelling the film - soft aggressions and flashes of kharmic resolution: “It was at all unclear whether this private and personal failing is relevant to his work.” The film’s a high-wire act asking to separate art from artist, with no easy answer.

Cate Blanchett is on fire in this biography of a disagreeable orchestra conductor who bullies her pupils, lies to her partner and betrays her colleagues in her single minded pursuit of her artistic goals. It's compellingly directed, with Blanchett in every scene, the camera relentlessly following her every move, so we become complicit in her actions, and as difficult as she can be it's hard not to root for her. The acutely observed commentary on gender and political correctness is also spot on

Watched this with my partner who is currently doing a PhD in Composition. We both agreed that Blanchett's performance was towering and the sound design was subtly good, but that the film lacked concision. It runs about 30 minutes too long, with many scenes that felt unnecessary and could have been easily excised without taking away from the central story or themes.

Excellent performance from Blanchett, and I enjoyed Todd Fields’ direction. The score is pretty much perfect (though the choice for the credits was pretty odd). The deliberate pacing and long runtime will make this unwatchable for a lot of people, but surprisingly didn’t bother me. Probably not a common criticism, but I found the student Max to be a really on the nose stereotype that would fit better in a show like Family Guy than he did in a film like this. Recommended, but not for casuals.

Can't help but think that this movie would have failed miserably with anyone else than Blanchett in the lead. Absolute tour-de-force.

I hoped that Tár's music and music-making would be a more central part of the movie, since it was what drove Tár to greatness and might have been her single virtuous character trait. However, I felt music was treated at a superficial level and discarded as a plot vehicle. All we got to see was the one-sided view of a flawed person. Disappointing.

Delightfully nasty and messy. Amidst all the dreck on the screen these days, it’s a pleasure to see Field taking some risks, even if so many fail that they tilt the movie into bathos at the end. The biggest problem is Blanchett, who strains for effect. She can’t hold a candle against Julian Glover, or even Adam Gopnick. Still, worth watching, even just for the pantsuits.

An interesting character study, with an excellent lead performance by Cate Blanchett that pretty much carries the entire movie. The beginning can be a little slow, and I can see some finding it dry. The dialogue is rather heady in places with all of the music terminology. But just stick with it. Blanchett's performance really is worth it, and things do pick up once they start adding in more conflict. It's certainly not for everyone, but fans of Blanchett should definitely check this out.

Blanchett gives a taught and angular performance exploring power dynamics on both sides of a generational free-speech-me-too-cancel-culture divide.

Turns out the real patriarchy was lesbians all along. Who knew? There's no denying that Tár is a masterful film, from the acting to the orchestral form and plotting full of glimpses of both horror and dark humour... And yet, why THIS character to comment on these issues, why THESE strawmen and jealous alsorans up against our Genius? Field makes some choices here that seem to provoke. And he calls attention to them. He's either protesting too much or having us on. That's part of the story.

An excellent account of both individual and institutionalised power that feed on each other. The chaotic and imbalanced nature of artistic mastery is aptly juxtaposed with the cold politics of status/reputation management, showing how time and has caught up with the immunity of the unfaltering genius. The fall of a maestro is also depicted through symbolic touches that provide enjoyment for multiple viewings. Oscars for directing and leading actress would be well deserved.

Blanchett is really superb in this ... mostly character study, which has a few intriguing themes bubbling around. It reminded me a bit of "Whiplash", only in the sense that it considers to what extent greatness requires being driven, self-absorbed and totally inconsiderate. It's also a healthy reminder that the only thing one really needs to be an abuser of power is power. It's a complex film that I didn't fall in love with, but can't stop thinking about.

Strong contender for the best directed film of the year. Blanchett, who is always visionary, commands this overlong yet perfectly paced fictional biopic. And it's so loaded with detail that no wonder the internet has jumped at the in-joke of perpetuating Lydia Tar as a real person. I found this varied and confident in every scene and an expert case of letting the plot dance in our periphery -- just enough to keep us enticed while allowing us the space to breathe everything else going on.

Not exactly what I was expecting, and even the maddening aspects of the film still intrigue me. Working both as a condensed story for music's rather long history, and as an entertaining modern spectacle, this shows a most intriguing characterisation that took me by surprise at many levels, all pretty damn well performed by Blanchett and co. A rewatch would probably make the funnier levels of the movie stand out more.

Pretentious, yet excellent. A character study exploring identity and the corrupting influence of fame, talent and power. An absorbing, intricate, multi-layered, multi-genre, psycho-drama, social commentary, mystery, puzzle-solver and (possible) supernatural horror story. All anchored by Blanchett's amazing performance. Polarizing, slow-to-start and intentionally opaque, it demands the viewer's attention (or re-watch). I can respect why some may find it overly long, obscured or simply confusing.

Le film est fichtrement bien foutu dans le sens où il arrive à trouver un équilibre sérieux. Le pur produit d'auteur consciencieux de son message, mais en le poudrant bien avec une intrigue superflue, Tàr est perverse ou maniaque ? Il y a même un monologue extraordinaire contre le wokisme. Et pour mon plus grand regret, c'est juste un effet d'annonce parce que Field, au lieu de nous satisfaire d'une morale complexe, fait de Lydia Tàr une Donald Trump à déboulonner. Et c'est trop long aussi.

Well, although this is considered one of the top films of 2022, I didn't land there. It took me about 5 sessions to get through it. It's long and tedious. The story picks up midway through, but the ending was unsatisfying for me. Outstanding performance by Blanchett (as expected), but that wasn't enough to save it for me. Even the music, which I would love to have heard more of, wasn't there enough to fulfill. I suppose I missed something. If you know, explain it to me.

This film is dialogue heavy and there isn't music in every scene or even most of them, surprisingly enough. It focuses a fair bit on more mundane aspects of (Lydia) Tar's life, which is interesting in a way, how such a well regarded professional of her type lives her life & an insight into her thoughts/vulnerabilities. Its not a thrillingly tense and overly engrossing film at first but its worth sticking with and really taking in the musical atmosphere during the instrumental/classical recitals.

Exquisitely nuanced and thought-provoking. Linda Tarr is as complex and interesting a person as you can get. Blanchett gives a monumental performance where I never forgot that it was her but that somehow added to the experience. The strangeness surrounding her reads like her nascent conscience bubbling to the surface and “attacking” her. The central question to me was not whether art can be separated from the artist, but rather how much leeway competency (and luck) ought to give you.

Blanchett masters all the technical, actorly things you might expect from a role like Lydia—the graceful transitions from German to English, the sweeping movements of her arms and body as she conducts, the real tickling of the ivories in her apartment. But there’s so much more to this performance, which seems specifically tailored to Blanchett’s aristocratic air yet swings from moments of sinister passive-aggression to raw bursts of emotion.

Cate Blanchett is a great actrice, that that is not reason enough to make a great film. There is a great deal of talk about art and music in the film, but their power is never felt. ("Elvis" in spite of its' shortcomings does that better). And then the character Tar has a dark side, but it is unclear to me what the film wants to say about that. The film touches upon themes such as metoo, art/artist and power but that is not enough to make it into the intelligent film it wants to be.

A hard movie to rate, it held my attention fairly well and had good suspense. The score and plot created good tension, you could feel Tar's unhinged persona and abusive toxicity through the screen. It was a bit all over the place and I did think the run time was a half hour too long. Blanchett's acting was strong.

Cate Blanchett is a master of her craft; making her the reason I've liked this one the most out of the 2022 nominees I've watched because they were nominees. Well, there were other reasons too, but it was mostly her.

I don't get the hype. "Tár" is stiff beyond saving with its fetishized long takes and the seriousness of the performances. Only Nina Hoss brings a bit of life with her pill-induced grumpiness. The movie gives you some bites of topics to think about, but I think it fails to connect the dots. Therefore every scratched on topic seems pointless and completely forced with their connections to reality. The jokes were completely calculated too and Blanchett seemed to run against a wall with her acting.

Despite its flaws, “TÁR” is a masterful film that offers a captivating exploration of a complex character brought to life by a remarkable performance from Cate Blanchett. Todd Field's direction and screenplay are both excellent, creating a cinematic experience that is both thought-provoking and emotionally resonant. It is a must-see for fans of Blanchett and those who appreciate challenging and thought-provoking cinema.

I found it very refreshing how Blanchett’s character makes an intellectually compelling and poignant argument for the separation of music from identity politics. Obviously it turns out that she was the villain of her own movie, as per the times. The script really reads as an anti-movie. We are told of or alluded to pivotal scenes that never actually are shown. The movie focuses on the mundane scenes and feels heavy and sluggish thereafter.
