Tár (2022) | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Wenlei Ma News.com.au Much like Lydia herself, Tar is a skilful, polished and fascinating piece of work, but it’s missing a beating heart. Rated: 3.5/5 Feb 6, 2023 Full Review Tár (2022) | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Sandra Hall Sydney Morning Herald The film is a genuine tragedy -- a black comic tragedy, but a tragedy nonetheless. When great artists betray their talent by treating it carelessly and abusing the power that comes with it, it’s always a tragedy. Rated: 4.5/5 Jan 26, 2023 Full Review Tár (2022) | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Wendy Ide Observer (UK) It’s a phenomenal picture, supported by top-tier crew... Rated: 5/5 Jan 16, 2023 Full Review Tár (2022) | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Zach Youngs InSession Film This film is so brilliant because every aspect of it is so perfect, so well crafted and honed into that perfection. What an absolute marvel this film is. Jul 3, 2024 Full Review Tár (2022) | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Rosalie Kicks MovieJawn This script is so incredibly well written and fascinating. I loved the ride this film takes you on as you witness a person become completely unraveled and already can’t wait for the second viewing. Rated: 4/4 Jun 19, 2024 Full Review Tár (2022) | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Sarah Vincent Sarah G Vincent Views “Tár” is about the horror of being a woman and Tár’s inability to escape the societal gender limits when it comes to accessing and retaining privilege.
