TÁR | Ratings & Reviews

Director Todd Field returns from a 16 year filmmaking hiatus to command a near expert class of direction. This classical music/cancel culture/ghost story masterfully entrances you in every scene of its 2-hour 38-minute runtime.

"At heart it’s a very watchable and involving melodrama – but it’s unusually ambitious and remarkably serious in its engagement with classical music."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"(A) cruelly elegant, elegantly cruel... film."

The New York TimesThe New York Times

"TÁR is that rarest of items: a prestige awards contender that’s also a genuine art film."

RogerEbert.comRogerEbert.com

"Blanchett is such a blazing and commanding force in TÁR we almost instantly believe she’s been the title character her entire life..."

Chicago Sun-TimesChicago Sun-Times

"This precise, cutting story of a single conductor translates to a massive, impressively cogent commentary on power and its temptations."

Chicago ReaderChicago Reader

"Blanchett is so convincing, and Field’s approach is so authentic, that it feels like an event, not just a movie."

San Francisco ChronicleSan Francisco Chronicle

"Don't even think of missing it."

ABCABC

"The movie runs a mesmerising two hours and 38 minutes; I didn’t want it to end."

Los Angeles TimesLos Angeles Times

"A richly rendered creation."

VultureVulture

"One of the boldest and most exciting new American movies I’ve seen in years."

IndieWireIndieWire

"Most of this film is a near masterpiece... but (Field) doesn't stick the landing."

NPRNPR

"Tár is anything but clichéd. Not to be hyperbolic, but it might be perfect."

VoxVox

"It’s not just another movie—it’s an immersive visual and aural experience."

A.V. ClubA.V. Club

"It’s as far from the great art of movies as most movie scores are from a Mahler symphony."

The New YorkerThe New Yorker

"Despite occasional missteps, Tar should prove considerably thought-provoking for adventurous arthouse crowds."
