A Streaming Guide to Watching Todd Field’s Tár

An absolute masterwork—not only due to the memes—director Todd Field’s Best Picture nominee Tár, starring Cate Blanchett because the titular conductor, is considered one of the yr’s most beguiling and well-crafted movies. It’s also Field’s first since his 2006 project Little Children, and the wait was well well worth the 16-year gap. Best Actress nominee Blanchett is mesmerizing because the genius Leonard Bernstein mentee Lydia Tár, who’s preparing to guide the Berlin Philharmonic as a slow rot of scandal pursues her into even her most sacred rehearsal spaces.

Field’s long, drawn-out shots grow increasingly quick as Tár’s rigorously constructed life sifts through her fingers, and yet the audience is rarely altogether certain of the main points surrounding the fallout. Tár is an unsettling pleasure, the form of film you may watch repeatedly and discover recent nuances. It’s also all but guaranteed to snap up loads of awards this season—including, possibly, Best Picture—as Blanchett is trotted out in contention for a Best Actress Oscar.

To make amends for the newest with Lydia, you will have a couple of options for how you can watch Tár online. They include:

Because Tár is produced by Focus Features—which, in turn, is owned by NBCUniversal—the film is now streaming on Peacock, which NBCUniversal owns. You possibly can subscribe to Peacock for $4.99 a month (or $9.99 a month for those who don’t want ads). Trust us: A viewing (or a second or a 3rd!) of Tár is well worth the fee.
