/* ---- VIDEO INFORMATION ---- */

Alright so with the Oscar nominations being announced about a week ago, Cate Blanchett’s Tar gobbled up a handful of noms, and this isn't your typical dry drama. Nah, this wasn’t marketed well, because this is a psychological drama tense “cancel culture” thriller, so we’re going to be breaking this thing down for you, explaining the ending, some of it’s themes, and why the heck there’s a ghost creeping on Lydia Tar.

But with that out of the way, a huge thank you for clicking this, I’m your host Jared, now let’s get into Tar.

So Tar follows Cate Blanchett’s Lydia Tar, essentially being at the top of her game. An accomplished composer, pianist, musicologist, and the first female chief conductor of the Berlin Philharmonic. We see her relishing in these accomplishments, being interviewed at The New Yorker Festival, promoting a handful of projects. Two noteworthy ones are her new book, Tar on Tar, which just screams that Obama awarding himself with a medal meme, and her upcoming live recording of Mahler’s (Mall-ler) Fifth Symphony.

However, with this level of fame and expertise, we soon learn Lydia may have a bit more of a dark side/past to her. Sure being a bit demanding when it comes to the do’s and don’ts of her staff for the upcoming Symphony, but very much badgers one of her BIPOC pangender students about their influences in composers, urging them to focus on their art, rather than the transgressions they may or may not have committed in their personal lives.

I know this might cheapen the message of the movie to some extent, but I believe there's actually a case to be made that Krista's ghost is legitimately haunting Lydia, since you can't really write off all of the sightings as hallucinations when Lydia herself doesn't even notice them. Krista is just sort of... there, whether Lydia sees her or not.

The final scene completely makes the movie for me. In the NewYorker interview Tar says “time IS the thing” and in the final shot she is bound to the video on the screen, enslaved to time.

Wow. She is no longer the one who decides when they arrive. She has truly lost her power. This makes me think of the voice-over dictating the meaning of the music. She doesn't get to interpret that anymore, either.

That's one of the thoughts I had in my head and couldn't explain, as a musician getting stick to the metronome is annoying, like you said it feels like being slaved, and being a great composer and specially a director getting stick to it is like a punishment, so it's gratifying knowing that somehow she received what she deserve at the end

I love the line in the doctors office commenting on more than just her back problems, "You need an adjustment, you're a little crooked." a little crooked is right, the thing I love about this character is that she isn't all bad. She wants to do the right thing, and sometimes does, but ends up giving into her darker nature. I'm obsessed with the whole film and I've only seen it once so far.

@zs zs well first off, thank you for not trying to deny the obvious subtext of the movie like the bozo above. But regardless of her motivation or who broke things off we KNOW that tar slandered her because we see she sent emails (I’m multiple languages) saying the girl was a nightmare to work with.

@Bacall McElroy ok, Krista and Lydia had an affair. Fine. The relationship fell apart. Fine. As we know from the movie Lydia is the one who does not want any connection to Krista not vice versa. So we can say it was not Krista who ended the relationship. If this is the case then what is Lydia's motivation to destroy Krista's career?

I think you missed one of my favorite themes in the whole movie. The contradiction between the glossy fake perfect world of the highly trained successful classical musical world and the reality of life....tying in the issues she had with her disabled neighbor. like when she had to assist the woman who had feces all over her but then had to rush back to be there for the practice with Olga. And then when the neighbors said she was disturbing them with her music. As a not successful wealthy musician, I just loved the reality check of that one!

This is exactly what got me!! I’ve worked in care, so I know the harsh unrelenting indignity of personal care! The fact Lydia lives in such organised, sterile precision ….and was suddenly thrust into the chaos of her neighbours apartment….wasn’t lost on me. Also how she had to physically touch the naked old lady…being a confrontation of her own mortality/physicality….and getting her ‘hands dirty’ so to speak.

A small observation to make: the story of Wilhelm Furtwängler and its importance. The composer, after he could no longer perform on stage, went to the cemetery to give concerts instead, although perhaps if he had moved away and started a new life in the same way, he could have rebuilt his career. This is an important element compared to Lydia, who threw away her artistic integrity, conducting on a cosplay.

There's no clear mention of Lydia having a romantic relationship with Krista. It's all implies but nothing has been given directly. That's what I loved about this movie: It doesn't spoon feed the audience anything. We are left to interpretations and thus lively discussions. So rich detailed movie with a tour de force from Cate Blanchett

@MaraMara89 your comment is proof that many people simply do not understand acting especially subtle nuanced acting which is very difficult to do. Cate didn’t have much to show us? She became the character in this movie. She made it very real and grounded in reality. You’re impressed by Michelle Yeoh bc of the literal theatrics and big action taking place, she had bigger emotions to show. But bigger doesn’t mean better execution. Most acting isn’t the same as good acting. It’s fine if you prefer Michelle’s performance, but your reasoning is flawed imo I agree with you JLC didn’t deserve to win, but Angela Bassett didn’t either. She gave a soap opera performance. Neither of them should’ve even been nominated
MaraMara89 8 gün önce
@zs zs Cate is great actress, but she doesn't have much to show us in this movie. Michelle Yeoh had more to show in hers - that's why she won. Academy is broken for long time and they have they favorites and award goes to people they like lot of times, this year it was definitely Jamie Lee Curtis who didn't deserve an Oscar, but is from family with tradition, people in general likes her and chances for another nomination are really low as she isn't good actress/don't star in good (not commercial good, but Academy-good) movies. If academy was so keen to "make history" they should gave that Oscar (supporting female) to any of POC women, especially for performance in Wakanda Forever as it would be really historical moment to award actress from Marvel movie

@rics is it that masterful? We have movie with huge holes in plot. We don't know what has happened and why character do anything she do. For me it is lazy writing. Or even playing it safe - let people decide what they think has happened. As if writer/director was too afraid to show as either predator or insanity... Only good thing about this movie is how it shows music/orchestra word
MaraMara89 8 gün önce
@zs zs no, I don't know why she wrote it. That's one of the reasons why I don't like this movie. There are huge parts of story that wasn't explained - as if creators didn't have enough ideas... But: we are not sure if Krista was stalking her - that could be only in Tar's head, and even if that was true - she did it only AFTER all those emails. I also would be pissed if someone would destroy my career. Also: if Tar wouldn't do anything bad and was afraid of Krista why she didn't go to police? Why would she be delateing those emails. Tar's assistant doesn't seemed scared of Krista, was compassionate about her - and she left Tar. That's seemed like she knew who the bad person was.

What I also really loved about the movie, is how rhythm (and time) follows here, like how the maids fold out the sheets, or when she boxes. The second time she boxes, I actually thought I heard Mozart’s Eine Kleine Nachtmusik haha. I absolutely loved this movie, there is still so much to discover about it. All the subtle details, like how she is obsessed with hygiene and all the foreshadowing from the interview, is amazing

Excellent breakdown. I did catch the “ghost” in her apartment but I didn’t catch the one at night in her bedroom. Blanchett’s performance was magnetic, nuanced and powerful! Some might even think Lydia Tar is a real person or the movie is an autobiography. Excellent direction and beautifully shot as well! One of my favourites of the year!

One more thing I wanted to add but had forgotten to include is who stole Lydia's performance score? Did Lydia have any kind of affair with Francesca? The only person that had access to the apartment was Francesca because she had her keys several times and would be so easy for her to make copies of it to steal the score as part of the takedown. But when Olga showed up at that photo shoot and Lydia happens to look up and see over there there was no reason for Olga to be there and it was almost like if that could have been her using Francesca's keys to go into the apartment knowing that both Sharon and Lydia were out of the house and Petra was at school. And lastly when Francesca quit vacated her place so quickly like that had to be planned ahead and who was she living with I think she teamed up with Olga cuz it was most certainly not that Olga was living in that squatter place with all that water would have ruined her cello. So many unanswered questions and then when Olga was at the book reading she was texting to someone and that someone had to be Francesca.

it was the same live chatting thing we see in the beginning of the movie so i agree and i think in the beginning the person on the plane with tar is francesca and she is texting olga, since we see olga later texting seemingly francesca

I think that like all the others things, it only shows the paranoia from which Lydia suffers more and more, so it's not a real thing, like the metronome in the cupboard or the pattern on her daughter's table.

There's another pretty interesting interaction between Tár and the man who wanted some notes from her(can't remember his name), kinda mirroring how some artists can get lost trying to be exactly like their heroes but also how the artists they look up to will be vague about sharing their knowledge because they don't want their juniors to advance beyond them. Only for Tár to get replaced the same character in the end.

We see the Krista symbols appearing in Lydia's house at least twice. They were presented once on the rhythm machine hidden inside a cupboard, once in the form of Petra's play doh. Did Krista's ghost make those symbols appear in the house?

I saw the "ghosts" when watching it. The first one I thought was a mistake - someone on set didn't move out of the shot. The second one was CLEARLY not that... Very creepy. Followed up by the little girl looking over Lydia's shoulder and then burying her face into her shoulder... Yikes.

Also I'm still wondering what happens with the girl Tar meets after the interview, it seems Lydia keeps the red handbag and takes it to Berlin, but we never get to see how or why this happened, to me it's a symbol how Tar always takes something from her affairs, like a troffy, another predatory characteristic.

She goes to meet that woman for a romantic adventure AFTER she has told her assistant 'no need to come back for notes tonight ' and sends her away.... then she starts to dress up.... Of course we don't see her sex episodes with other women, it is always implied, but the handbag is 'proof' if you like and her assistant always is aware because she KNOWS Lydia, and obviously those two have been intimate before as well
HenriBoteule Aylar önce
one thing I caught, I think, is that there is this mysterious alarm sound that seemingly inspires the melody for her 'for Petra' song that she's composing and that ends up being the distress signal of this elderly woman on the brink of death... very very ominous. Also I think there is something going on about Tar's early studies in ethnic music. I mean between the intro credit song that sounds very ethnic, to the tribal nature of the pattern that shows up several times and the vision of this shaman looking guy in her dreams. I'm also wondering if Petra isn't actually adopted from this country maybe? why is Petra explicitly shown to have drawn the pattern herself several times in the movie? why does she seem like she sees something when she looks directly at the camera in that one scene?... I'm curous if other people have more theories about this.

I've seen the movie four times and i just can't get enough, everytime I watch it i catch something new and makes go 🤯🤯🤯 for me Olga and Francesca had some connection and have met previously and team up to make Lydia go insane and finally accept what she did to Krista. That scene of the live chatting i connect it to Olga traveling with her to New York in the private jet we see later on on the movie. This has so many layers it's worth a watch several times, it's just genius.

Finally! Out of all the analyses I've read and watched, you're the ONLY one to have brought up the fascinating final dream sequence of her in bed with the long branch dangling over her, precariously held up! It's such a profound dream infused with powerful symbolism, it's been bothering me that nobody else noticed it or paid attention to it. Thank you sir for giving it the attention it deserves, though there is so much more to it that can be explored. In contrast to your interpretation, to me this dream was unmistakably a reference to the Sword of Damocles (which indicates impending doom), with the branch as the hanging blade and the spreading flame a symbolic indicator that it had finally fallen onto her - a means of expressing a falling blade without having one explicitly & visually actually fall. Interestingly, this dream indeed marked the transition point in the film where everything begins to fall apart for her, rapidly leading to her complete destruction - something you astutely noted yourself, color me impressed. This dream sequence is a subtle nudge for those aware enough to grasp it, to brace themselves to realize that everything for her was about to go completely downhill. The metaphor works profoundly well for her story and character arc, and as the person in the position of power under constant threat, she is willingly surrounded by a moat of water to protect her at her most vulnerable (her subconscious that is exposed in her sleep, and why she has trouble sleeping.), just as described in the original Roman allegory. The snake moving through the water is new to me, something I totally didn't catch, so thank you so much for pointing that out! You've also provided some neat explanations for what the snake may represent. I believe those interpretations can actually be correct. But I've used your insights to evolve my understanding of the metaphor even further. Hear me out: The snake shuffling its way in the water towards her, as her hand begins to lay out over the water, prime to be bitten soon after, is her past finally catching up to her and biting her. This was the point after which her past led to her complete downfall. That sneaky past, the accumulation of her past sins, slithered its way into her life and struck her where and when she is most vulnerable. This aligns with the conniving, scheming, duplicitous, and malicious intentions of all the people in her life who use her for their own benefit and advancement, just the same way they claim she abused her privilege in the position of power she held. So the snake in the protective body of water is all her wrongs finally coming back to bite her. What an insanely profound and effective metaphor. It all aligns perfectly. I'm surprised nobody has brought this up yet - not in any review or comment about the film I've seen so far, not even yours. Am I the only one who noticed that it's a reference to the Sword of Damocles?

ABSOLUTELY loved Tár in spite of her faults, great character but not great person. Cate Blanchett might just be one of my favorite actors/actresses that I don’t see in enough movies. (Hot take, she might just be the best part of Thor Ragnarok). Between this, Black Swan, and Whiplash (maybe Babylon and obviously a few others) I’m developing a big love of movies that explore the tortured artist.

Its incredible that people don’t realize you can appreciate a villain. Everyone gets so hurt now but movies would be nothing without an interesting enemy like Tár, Hannibal Lecter, Jason Voorhees. It’s also important to realize that different types of villains have different strengths and being various energies to their films. Like just because Lydia isn’t a killer like Lecter or Jason doesn’t mean she’s not bad but this movie entirely hinges on watching her layers and while we might judge it’s still interesting to witness.

One thing I love about the movie is that we pretty much never leave the characters perspective, so taking anything at face value is almost impossible, kind of like with Joaquin Phoenix' Joker, though that movie was more straightforward with its reveal. Depending on ones interpretation (in the same way the conductor might disagree with the composer), one could argue very few of the things we're seeing on screen actually happen, or everything happens exactly as witnessed, or that the truth is somewhere in the middle

Thank you Sooo much for your commentary. As with many first viewings I completely missed the Easter Eggs. TAR is streaming now so it will be great to see it again. Cate’s performance was spectacular! The only one who can beat her to the Oscar is Michelle Yeou, but her movie was confusing to most people, unlike TAR which is crystal clear in it’s depiction of the rise and fall of a tortured soul. When I first saw the title I thought, “ Blanchett is in a movie about a paving company?! “ Just kidding. Thanks again for the wonderful analysis. It will make my second viewing much more enjoyable.

Lydia’s conclusion when Max abandoned the class “Unfortunately, the architect of your soul appears to be social media". I think this is a very appropriate for Lydia to say because she’s being defending that the music shall be interpreted as the way you’re feeling it, where the words can’t explain it, like Bernstein said at the end of the movie. But exactly that architect catches her without her being able to resist, it eats her. She ends directing an orchestra for a comic video where the public, at the same time and for sure, expends hours, days immersed in the social media. The perfect loop ➰. The movie is so amazing intense and Blanchett trapped me from the first moment she enters into scene. She speaks German like she were born in Berlin, no accent! I do speak German so I can tell. The interview at the beginning of the movie, she hypnotized me not only with her voice but with the way she speaks with her hands. Wow! not many movies leave me thinking and reflecting like Tár. And I go to the movies at least once a week.

Interesting point about social media. Blanchett was insanely good, her German however was absolutely not perfect (which it doesn't have to be as her character is American). No German would mistake her for a native speaker, sometimes I as a "Berliner" could barely understand what she was saying. German is a difficult language, though, and many of it's sounds and vowels are almost impossible to recreate for non-native speakers who learned it later in life, as is the case with most languages that differ too much from one's native tongue.

great breakdown jared! I watched it straight after seeing the movie for the first time and it really enriches the experience. reflecting on the little subtleties that you don't initially realise, but are there staring at you in the face the whole time is very reminiscent of something like shutter island on the second watch. francesca's passive aggression and animosity is really dialled up when you examine all of her body language once you know what you are looking for. another small detail I noticed is that in the 1st part when lydia is talking with a fan after her book event, lydia compliments her red bag, the fan, deborah (who lydia had already for gotten the name of) asked if she could text lydia. A few scenes later lydia has the red bag in the car with her and when she gets home to Germany to her partner. i wondered about the missing score also but assumed Francesca stole it and sold it to to kaplan - due to him badgering lydia for it at the start and saying he had been in communication with Francesca for a peek.

If you’re wondering if sexual harassment and abuse is a problem in classical music, look up James Levine and Charles Dutoit, two real conductors name-dropped in the movie. Levine, in particular, was notorious for his predatory behavior for decades before his reign of terror was finally stopped.

Thanks for your analysis. And, no, I did not see the ghost-like images in the film. One thing you didn’t include was Lydia’s bullying encounter with her daughter’s bully. This was the first time in the film that I realized her true dark nature. There was nothing ambiguous about that encounter; it was true naked power on a primal physical/psychological level and you could see the raw enjoyment that she got when she learned of the result she achieved. It is an interesting movie and I would enjoy seeing it again so I could enjoy a more nuanced viewing. Thanks a million.

The great thing about this film is that it perfectly conveys the message that what people call “Cancel Culture” is actually a shift in the nature of power in society. In short, it’s harder for people who climb the professional ladder in a heartless way like Lydia to maintain positions of power now because of technology and social media holding them accountable. While these terrible people may be great at their craft, this film shows that there is plenty of talent found in those surrounding these terrible people. These people are often suppressed by the Lydias of the world and are often more deserving of positions of power.

@Kind Japan Not really, I agree with usernotfound here. Interpreting Lydia as a monster in this film is actually too shallow of an analysis. People she manipulates take advantage of her as much as she does. Also the Krista character can be seen as an overly attached, if not maniacal, old girlfriend or a mentally deranged fan. What I like about the film is that is goes both ways and shows how cancel culture ruins peoples careers without them actually committing a crime. While Lydia is probably nothing near what we would describe a "good person", she never betrays her love for musical perfection. And the film actually shows the paradox when she is replaced as a conductor due to..erhm, political reasons, by a venture capitalist, who, as implied, is not a particularly good of a conductor and likely had bought his spot on the stage.

Your video explanation was stellar!! I saw this in the movie theater when it premiered in November. I since rented it and then bought it and have seen it now a total of 10 times! I never caught those images those ghost-like images that you have shown. So I went back to that scene and I was like well it could really be anything but I had to look at it with a magnifying glass and say yes it did resemble Krista. However dead people don't have bones and flesh they are in their light body so I don't believe it was really Krista taunting her. There are some other things you have to consider such as the drug Lydia was taking which I refer to at the bottom. Firstly the text messages from the beginning of the film is a dialogue between Francesca and an unknown person who I think would have to be at that time perhaps Krista. I believe that Francesca and Olga planned to take Lydia down. And when she was rejected as the assistant conductor that's when they moved their plans into warp speed. Why I believe she was set up from the beginning because we never saw her do anything that she is actually accused of there was no physical and sexual advances toward these women that we could see the only thing was when they were in her apartment when the album covers were tossed on the floor looks like Lydia is putting her Barefoot onto somebody else's foot. Now in the whole movie you never see Francesca I believe ever entering into that apartment. She only is at the the big house.. So if it's not Francesca who is it then because she cut all ties with Krista? Which brings me to another question why did she prevent Krista from moving on if she wanted Krista out of her life and Lydia is in Berlin and Krista was applying to Philadelphia Orchestra and New York Orchestra why not have her conduct there and be done with her? Also as far as the hallucinations and the hearing all different sounds Lydia was overdosing on Sharon's metropola one of the side effects is hearing feeling and seeing things that are not real. There is something else that makes me support that she was set up when Lydia first goes into the bathroom before she's critiquing the live interviews Francesca is on her phone texting as Lydia enters the bathroom almost signaling Olga to come in and make her appearance into the bathroom. Another point is if you read the emails by freezing each scene Krista talks about her brain wishing she could take a pill to stop the way she feels. Secondly when Alec Baldwin is interviewing Lydia you see her Wikipedia page being edited which we don't know if the interview was in real time or recorded earlier but if it was in real time that was support Lydia's claim that Krista was vandalizing her Wikipedia page cuz Krista was still alive at that time . Now I have watched every Todd interview as well as the cast give all their different commentary and Todd left the movie ambiguous he left it up to the interpretation of the individual. I also would like to see the director's cut as he cut out so many important scenes that would really lend Clarity to what really was going on. So I hope he does release them at some point. Fantastic movie!

Very good and helpfull analysis- thx for sharing. What I was toying in my head was the thought about Krista Taylor- Krista is an anagram of at risk and taylor as her last name refers to me to one of the first scenes showing Lydia at the taylor getting a suit. The suit stands for power, masculinity, wealth and honor, everything that is put "at risk" through Krista in the end. Very interesting.

i saw Tar today alone in the cinemas, it bended my mind. i have started to go into films not reading a synopsis or watching the trailer, purely throwing myself into the deep end. i was engaged and rapidly trying to make full sense out of the first initial interview, tailing off reading a few text messages and watching the credits FIRST - genius. yet, i knew she was going to be haunted - from the getgo, as the text message first off stated that very thing, keeping an eye out, the paranoia that was built from the night sequences at home, any time she went for a run - i was fearful, and the connection that her daughter was having to the threat of a sleepless night. she was alert, on guard, yet her daughter could not sleep, and when she curled into Tar as she looked out into the dark hallway, chills. chills - constantly, and the sequence with the DOG - i honestly was frightened, the omen, it didn’t necessarily chase her, but the build up tension to witnessing her fall, truly was that moment i really started to see the foundational pillars of who she was, break. she truly was following bad habits, and wanting to pursue olga, the musical talent, was to tastefully addictive to her, and she held her self through - yet the constant pressure of the past, caught up with her - she she states in the first interview scene - the past and the present - collide. what a film, urge to watch it alone. it’s really well crafted and Blanchett can act her pants off.

I'm 99% sure that Francesca is taking all the damning videos of her and after Krista's death, she is instrumental in the "canceling." Can anybody else confirm that? Francesca would be the only person the plane with her and in the studio at Julliard where the footage is filmed. Are we sure, though, that nobody else was in on it? And if Francesca was taking the video and only vanished after she didn't get the promotion, isn't she every bit as guilty as Lydia for bad behavior?

Has anyone else noticed how often Tar tends to call other people "robots" when she wants to evaluate them negatively or emphasize their lack of emotional intelligence? It might tell us something significant about her position on many things: for example, I think in fact she deeply appreciates the authenticity of wild human nature and pure uncontrollable emotions that any of us have (her interest in Asian culture makes sense considering that). That inner freedom gave her an ability to see things from many perspectives and to become a truly great Artist, but it also made her vulnerable and destroyed her eventually. Maybe there was a crucial point in Tar's life when she gave herself that inner permission to do some dangerous and controversial things in order to stay "human", not a "robot"? Читать дальше

Merci pour ces explications, notamment celle du fantôme, que je n'avais pas perçu au premier abord, n'ayant pas saisi la référence à Sackwille-West et n'ayant pas vu le film sous l'angle du métaphysique. Bravo pour avoir trouvé la référence à Blair witch. Il y en a d'autres, angles : la relation au temps, au tempo, l'allusion à la relation Alma/Mahler et cette décision de "free cords" lorsque Kaplan lui demande de l'éclairer sur la mention "avec love". Il y a aussi le jeu de question/réponse perpétuel dans le film : dès le début, chaque vérité assénée par Tár est ensuite démentie par une autre : par exemple, quand elle attaque Sébastian sur son fétichisme alors qu'elle même s'inscrit dans l'héritage de Léonard Bernstein, jusqu'à se faire tailler une chemise, à se regarder dans un reflet, avec le même crayon, la même partition, la même pose que ce chef d'orchestre arbore sur la pochette de son disque consacré à la 5e de Mahler. Jeu de question/réponse auquel Bach consacra son oeuvre puisqu'il s'agit de la base de la forme de la fugue. Fugue que joue Tár dans ce fabuleux plan séquence de 10 minutes où elle lance ses avis sur la question du wokisme. Ce plan qui réapparaîtra, effectivement, morcelé lorsque son masque se fissurera sous les assauts de la réalité. Autrement dit un véritable carcan, minutieusement esquissé, et par différents indices, dans lequel l'héroïne est, dès le début du film, enfermé comme, déjà, sous l'emprise d'un sort ou d'un enchantement dont le seul moyen d'en échapper sera la mort (symbolique) ou la résignation. Sans parler de la portée de ce nombre cinq, que Tár, elle-même, qualifie de "mystère". Tár fait partie de ces films qu'il faudrait revoir 5 fois, au moins, ;), avant de pouvoir commencer à en retracer la partition, un peu comme les chefs d'oeuvre à clés de Peter Greenaway, Orson Welles, d'autres architectes et grands, très grands, compositeurs du cinéma. Je ne comprends cependant pas, pourquoi on ne cesse de citer Chazelle qui est pour moi un cinéaste dès plus creux à l'heure actuelle : tout dans la forme et très peu dans le fond, y compris pour son Whiplash. Todd Field portait lui aussi son film depuis au moins 10 ans ( à l'instar de Chazelle et de son exécrable et tonitruant Babylone) mais c'est d'une autre envergure. Tàr démontre que la forme est indissociable du fond et que cette osmose est la marque d'un chef d'oeuvre. Enfin, à mon avis :)

Just a detail about where Lydia ends up 'out East': for the river trip the reference to the crocodiles left over from the filming of Apocalypse Now places that scene in Pagsanhan, Philippines. But the Philippines is not very 'oriental', so other scenes may be filmed in Cambodia. Lydia under the waterfall in a very vulva-shaped rock formation may be in Thailand.

I wish I had watched this video earlier. I watched Tar for the second time recently and though I wasn't as lost the second go around, I would have benefited greatly by watching this first. Thank you. The one part I rarely see mentioned - Lydia steals Sharon's anxiety medication for her own use. But when Sharon is suffering an anxiety attack, Lydia pretends to find one loose in the drawer and comes to her rescue drawing one from her stolen stash. A rat indeed....but not totally without a conscience. Maybe because I think Cate walks on water as an actor, I found it impossible to hate Lydia despite not really liking her very much. Oscar worthy for sure.

cheers! that was a nice reading of the movie! although i think you kind of missed a bit with the use of sound. at one point lydia is talking to one of her colleagues, and they are talking about sound to noise ratios, bad mouthing another one of her subordinates, saying that he can't seem to tell the difference, after that, the movie turns almost into a psychological horror, with her imagining and hearing not just screams but noises like the metronome and a few other things. clever movie. i'm also glad you steered away from the simplistic, 'movie is an indictment of cancel culture' nonsense that seemed to follow this movie. while i do think that's a theme, lydia is punished for blacklisting, and ultimately causing krista's death. if it was about cancel culture being wrong, she wouldn't have gotten punished, she would have gotten away with it unscathed, while she is still conducting, she's been knocked down to being a persona non-grata, having to work and move overseas. i think it's also interesting how the ethnic throat singing during the opening scenes,--- the opening credits are deliberately eliding to the end of the movie.

I think things came crashing down on her due to her refusal to be honest with anyone, despite most people's knowledge of her typical behaviour with various women in her orchestra. She used favouritism, she treated for those she felt attracted to very differently to everyone else. Its occurrence with Olga was blatantly obvious! She was in denial of any involvement with Krista, and believed that destroying all of her evidence would keep het safe - she felt untouchable, due to her high position. Of course Krista also still had copies of their exchanges - Tàr wasn't completely untouchable! Believing she had the right to toss people aside when she tired of them and that everything she did, whether openly or behind closed doors was completely admissable was a big mistake, as she soon found out. Obviously not everyone liked her behaviour, even some of those for whom she performed special favours. She became far too confident in herself - it could be said that that's what too much power did to her... There were many more ghost sightings than those you mentioned, unless what I saw was Krista before her death. From the beginning of the film the back of a red-headed woman could be seen, watching (perhaps following) Lydia wherever she went. It certainly created quite an eerie sense for the film! Excellent!! Excellent performance from Cate Blanchett!!

I thought it was an excellent movie, so well scripted both in terms of the number of ideas and in the non-didactic way it developed. It's all nuance. You really have to think. Just one point where I am at variance with you: that incredible 16-minute take at Julliard, it so drew me in. I found myself absolutely on Tar's side. If the theme was the separation of the art from the artist, then JS Bach led an exemplary life. He was pillared by the young man based solely on racism and sexism - not a single aspect of his life was put under scrutiny. And his genius was dismissed - it's the essence of today's social madness. What really won me to Tar's side was the way she played Bach's prelude #1. I have never heard it played with so much feeling, and we must appreciate that this was an actor not a master pianist, doing an incredibly complex single take. It's like what I've always said about Tom Cruise - I couldn't care less about his private life but his movies have always been worth watching. Of course, people have to pay for their crimes and in this movie we have the depiction of a stalker, a predator who abuses their power and may or may not have led to someone else's suicide. We see her predatorial behaviour but we don't actually know the story of the young woman's death - merely some outline.

It was quite a strong film. Didn’t catch the ghosts in the corners of the frame, but I’m sure my subconscious did, which registers regardless. Very interesting story arc brilliant performances and wonderful direction and cinematography. Speaking of cinematography, the only time we see warm, rich colors is when Lydia is on the conducting platform. The rest of the time, we feel a coolness and abstract, unsettled feeling to the movie’s color palette, underscored by her remoteness and sketchiness in her predatory ways. We are used to seeing men like this, but now, it turns out, women can be predators, too. Lydia’s getting older and hitting on young musicians is wearing thin, particularly with the Russian cellist who comes from a professional musical family, and would have no doubt heard “insider information,” rumors of Lydia’s philandering and predatory ways. Great review! God Bless.
