Late to the conversation: Storied critic Amy Taubin has viciously trashed Todd Field's Tar, and in ways that struck me as mystifying. She's called it (a) "a dreadful movie," (b) "One of the stupidest movies I have seen in long time"...odd; (c) "Absolutely a one-note movie [that] turns into one of the most racist shit I have ever seen in a serious movie...I loathed this movie and I think [Cate Blanchett's] performance is terrible."
