Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine is not worthy of a Golden Globe

As I sat in a cosy small Indie cinema in the dark waiting for the film to start, I was struck by the strangest sense of déjà vu… ‘Will this be another lack lustre Woody Allen film or a hidden gem?’ It’s quite easy to deduce that now. Source: IMDb Woody Allen has been working in the film industry for almost 50 years now, but the past decade has seen a distinct decline in the ingenuity of his films.
