LAFCA Awards and TÁR Sydney Q&A

Sight and Sound March 2023 issue

In Tár, Todd Field’s provocative study of a spiky, morally compromised conductor, Cate Blanchett plays the imperious lead role to perfection. In the latest issue of Sight and Sound, she reflects on why, despite her initial fears, she knew she would relish the monstrous complexity of Lydia Tár. Todd Field outlines the leisurely gestation of the character of Lydia Tár and the long series of aborted prestige projects that followed his last film 16 years ago.
