DVD Review – Irrational Man (2015)

Irrational Man, 2015.

Directed by Woody Allen.

Starring Emma Stone, Joaquin Phoenix, Jamie Blackley, and Parker Posey.

Synopsis:

A philosophy professor, in the midst of an existential and a moral crisis, commits an irrevocable act of murder.

Nihilistic philosophy professor Abe (Joaquin Phoenix), a newly recruited member of the fictional college campus Braylin, is immediately sought after by fellow colleague Rita (Parker Posey) and one of his students Jill (Emma Stone). The first act is entrenched in a tonally jarring malaise; any semblance of believable character agency exerted by either of the two female leads is lost. Jill’s voice over describes Abe as a tormented genius, and an irresistible allure that she, both in this manner and toward her friends, family, and boyfriend Roy (James Blackley), cannot stop talking about him. Rita’s opening gambit to notify Abe of the campus’ gossip in the “who’s fucking who” category is brash,

Irrational Man review: Joaquin Phoenix is the best thing about this sub-par Woody Allen movie

Irrational Man review: Joaquin Phoenix is the best thing about this sub-par Woody Allen movie
Woody Allen's output may now feel like the cinematic equivalent of a cosy comfort blanket, but he's still more than willing to bring a dark streak to his films - sometimes, in the case of Irrational Man, with mixed results.

Like Crimes and Misdemeanors and Match Point, his latest offering has murder on the mind as Joaquin Phoenix's philosophy professor Abe Lucas ponders killing a judge to prevent an injustice. The film never takes off like Allen's recent Midnight in Paris or Blue Jasmine, but an engaging lead turn from Phoenix means it at least has something to shout about.

His Abe is something of a mess, shambling around a small uni campus in an existential funk. Wracked by emotional and physical impotence he hits rock bottom by testing his nerve in a demonstration of Russian roulette. Romantic attention from student Jill (Emma Stone) and faculty colleague Rita

Film Review: Deep Thoughts, Shallow Characters in ‘Irrational Man’

Chicago – At this point in his stellar career, what is fascinating about Woody Allen is basically what he thinks about. He is a successful, family-stable, millionaire filmmaker with mortality issues. In “Irrational Man,” he ponders the existential question of “what lights the spark of life?”

Rating: 3.0/5.0

The other question – in critical circles – is always, “what kind of Woody Allen will show up?” In assessing his long career, there are masterpieces, middle-of-the-roaders and duds, but it’s his dogged pursuit of making movies that is always welcome, and oddly comforting. “Irrational Man” is a middle-of-the-roader with flashes of brilliance, but the thin way Allen draws the characters – students and professors in an academic setting – is very irritating in the context of what he ponders. The film is less of an entertainment than a philosophical exercise, and Woody does attempt to have a meaningful discussion about a very piquant subject, but ultimately

Irrational Man” is Woody Allen’s 47th film as director, an amazing output for an American filmmaker, and unlikely to be duplicated for mainstream releases in the future. He began with “What’s Up, Tiger Lily?” in 1966, won an Oscar for directing Annie Hall (1977) and has written or co-written every screenplay he has ever filmed. “Irrational Man” is another Woody Allen contemplative film, set on a college campus, regarding a philosophy professor (Joaquin Phoenix) who shakes himself out of a case of

Jamie Blackley: actor in Woody Allen's latest is ‘a bit of a nervous wreck’

The British actor, who takes the screen in Woody Allen’s new film Irrational Man, loves football and Joy Division – enough that he has an Ian Curtis tattoo

Never mind the refined chin line or rakish mid-length brown locks through which Jamie Blackley runs his fingers as he slouches at a 45-degree angle on a banquette in the dimly lit bar of the Carlyle hotel on Manhattan’s Upper East Side. What’s harder to notice is underneath his thin, striped T-shirt: a fist-sized tattoo of the late Joy Division singer Ian Curtis leaning on a microphone.

That bit of ink can certainly tell us more about this 24-year-old newcomer, who has a supporting role in Woody Allen’s latest film, Irrational Man, than any of the reviews, which have largely ignored him.

Irrational Man | Review

Tepid Contemplation: The Unraveling of a Mild Murder Plot

For his 46th feature film, Irrational Man calls upon Woody Allen’s fascination, or at least tendency to create a rhythm found in carefully selected individuals and their counterparts. As he revisits the idea of murder against a bright and picturesque backdrop, the film delivers on fan service as it continues and prolongs Allen’s inclinations and proclivities as an auteur. And yet, it’s starkingly problematic as a standalone piece.

Joaquin Phoenix arrives at a quaint New England campus as Abe Lucas, a renowned philosophy professor. His reputation as an anti-thesis and enigma precedes him and it doesn’t take long for enthusiasm, intrigue, and gossip to build amongst the students and faculty. The former includes bright-eyed Jill Pollard (Emma Stone) who babbles on about his brilliance, much to the dismay of her doting boyfriend (Jamie Blackley) and the latter

20 New Photos Of Woody Allen’s 'Irrational Man Starring Emma Stone & Joaquin Phoenix

Maybe Emma Stone would rather star in Woody Allen movies than "Ghostbusters" reboots/sequels? Even if each one isn't a success artistically, it still seems like the right choice; an artisan over a franchise, and one that's had trouble coming to the screen. For an added bonus, she gets to work with Joaquin Phoenix, one of the best actors in the game at the moment, and together they've cooked up "Irrational Man." The movie is another breezy, existential piece from part-time jazz musician Woody Allen, this time following a college professor facing a personal crisis. But it all changes once he overhears a crucial conversation in a restaurant, and it gives him a new perspective on his life, surprising everyone around him. Joining in the fun are Parker Posey and Jamie Blackley. Read More: Emma Stone Doesn't Want To Go In New Clip From Woody Allen's 'Irrational Man
