Storyline

Manifesto draws on the writings of Futurists, Dadaists, Fluxus artists, Suprematists, Situtationists, Dogma 95 and other artist groups, and the musings of individual artists, architects, dancers and filmmakers, editing and reassembling them as a collage of artists' manifestos, ultimately questioning the role of the artist in society today. Performing these 'new manifestos' while inhabiting thirteen different personas - among them a school teacher, a puppeteer, a newsreader, a factory worker and a homeless man - Cate Blanchett imbues new dramatic life into these famous words in unexpected contexts.

Various: [as a fifth-grade teacher] Now, nothing is original. OK? So you can steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration and fuels your imagination. OK? And you can devour old films, new films, music, books, paintings, photographs, poems, dreams, random conversations, architecture, buildings, bridges, you know, trees, cloud formations, bodies of water, you know, even... even light and shadows. Now, I want you to select only those things to steal from that speak directly to your soul. All right? ...

Like nothing we've ever seen
7 December 2017 | by See all my reviews

...And the best thing we've seen all year. We love great acting, big ideas, inspired film settings and cinematography, and ironically subtle subtexts. This film has them all. Wow. If you can keep your mind focused for an hour and a half and can hear ideas while recognizing how visuals can function as a counterpoint that often critiques them, this film is for you, otherwise it is probably NOT for you.
