    Review: 'Blue Jasmine' a bleak but moving gem
    She's come undone. The title of one of my favorite Wally Lamb novels about a woman over the edge kept running through my mind as I watched Woody Allen's new film "Blue Jasmine." There's just no better way to put it. Jasmine, in such a paralyzing state...
