Cate Blanchett
Actress, The Good German (2006)
Blanchett's performance is Soderbergh's biggest mistake. He either encourages or permits her to play Lena as a Greta Garbo caricature, which is mildly amusing if you're interested in Garbo, but if you're interested in Lena and The Good German, you're out of luck.
(Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle)
Cate Blanchett seems to think that imitating Marlene Dietrich’s voice and Greta Garbo’s posture somehow amounts to a performance. Rarely has a femme fatale been so deadly dull.
