10 YEARS AT THE MOVIES: BEST PERFORMANCE #1 - CATE BLANCHETT (I'M NOT THERE.)


Cate Blanchett's incarnation of Bob Dylan was one of the most startling things I saw in a movie released in the last ten years, and one of the most fantastic. And that's just up to that final lingering look, straight down the lens. She did it again in The Curious Case of Benjamin Button - one of her most underrated turns - staring not just into the camera but into your soul. This chick has it down. #down. Cate surpasses even her marvellous performances in films like Elizabeth, Veronica Guerin, Coffee and Cigarettes, The Aviator, Elizabeth: The Golden Age and Blue Jasmine with this superb portrayal of folk music's most iconic artist.
