Clever, if (intentionally) derivative satire with great performances.
9 October 1998 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

A stellar cast, lovely B&W cinematography, funny dialogue (mostly taken from Allen's play "Death"), a wonderful score of the music of Kurt Weill, a mild satire of Kafka, etc. Reviled by many -- I loved it.
