First look of Cate Blanchett in "I'm Not There"

Not really sure what to think. I can see people going wild for it, but for me it looks a little too mannered and calculated.
I remember that story that according to Katharine Hepburn's official biographer A. Scott Berg, Meryl Streep was her least favorite modern actress on screen: "Click, click, click," she said, referring to the wheels turning inside Streep's head (petty jealousy from Ms. Hepburn).
That is EXACTLY what I am thinking here with Blanchett's performance of Bob Dylan.
Check it out

I do realise that there are people who are already falling over themselves for this, but it seems more like a gimmick
