Cate Blanchett receives a six-minute standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival for her performance in TÁR.

Cate Blanchett great in ‘Tár’

Amazing shots and surreal images in the latest film by Todd Field, the famously unprolific director who made the award winning In the Bedroom (2001) and Little Children (2006).

All we know of the plot, which is categorized as a ‘thriller,’ is that Lydia faces ‘a moment of crisis.’ Cate Blanchett added to the enigma by saying the film is about “a fall from grace, the creative process, and about power.”

Filmed in Berlin, the movie runs 2 hours and 40 minutes and will be in theaters on October 7.
