Deconstructing Harry (1997)
Javier Gutiérrez is Álvaro, a notary in the southern Spanish city of Seville and a wannabe novelist who elevates his hum-drum life for years at a creative writing evening class where his amateurish writing is given short shrift by his irascible tutor (a great Antonio de la Torre).
His life is quickly overturned when his wife Amanda’s (Maríá León) debut novel becomes an overnight hit on the best-seller lists, and his ambitions

This week’s question comes from commenter DrDischord:
Who’s your favorite devil? The gay, emotionally needy Satan of South Park? The Bowie-esque king of hell from the Sandman comics? Billy Crystal in Deconstructing Harry?
What makes Beelzebot, the robot devil from Futurama, so great is how often he fails at embodying the most notable traits of either robot or devil. As the devil, he attempts cunning, but is also easily duped. As a robot, he’s emotional
Led by Kristen Stewart (who we expect to also show up with Olivier Assayas‘ Personal Shopper) and Jesse Eisenberg, the announcement also comes with an official logline (following last week’s details from cinematographer Vittorio Storaro) and the first still, seen above. Check out the press release below in full and return for our review.
The 69th Festival International du Film de Cannes will launch with a screening of Woody Allen’s new film, Café Society, on Wednesday 11 May in the Palais des Festivals’s Grand Théâtre
Alvarez will serve as an in-house producer for two-year-old Broad Green, which has been seeking to broaden its slate and move into mainstream wide-release projects.
An informed source said Alvarez has resigned from his post at Relativity Studios, where he was named last year as exec VP of production and president its multicultural division, and that Relativity is seeking a replacement.
“Straight Outta Compton” has been an outsized hit for Universal with $161 million in U.S. grosses. Alvarez has also produced the “Friday,” “Barbershop,” “Are We There Yet?” and “Ride Along” series, as well as “All About the Benjamins” and “First Sunday.”
“We have long admired Matt’s movies and incredible eye for material, and we are thrilled to partner with him,” said Gabriel Hammond, CEO of Broad Green Pictures,
Creators have been mixing it up with their characters for a while. You can see it in Fellini’s 8½, Woody Allen’s Deconstructing Harry, or, heck, the Warner Bros cartoon Duck Amuck. Then there are the times when it’s not an author character showing up, but the actual author, such as Stephen King in The Dark Tower or Kurt Vonnegut in Breakfast of Champions. Somewhere in between is Charlie Kaufman writing the character Charlie Kaufman for Nicolas Cage to play in Adaptation.
Now this mind-scrambling list needs to find a place for Larry Karaszewski and Scott Alexander’s character Rl Stine – based on the actual creator of the popular Goosebumps novels – who encounters many Goosebumps villains in the new movie called Goosebumps.
WestEnd already holds the rights to 10 Allen movies, including “Everyone Says I Love You,” “Sweet and Lowdown,” “Deconstructing Harry” and “Small Time Crooks.” The films topline such stars as Leonardo DiCaprio, Julia Roberts, Sean Penn, Robin Williams, Billy Crystal and Hugh Grant.
2005 movie “Match Point,” which stars Brian Cox, Matthew Goode, Scarlett Johansson, Emily Mortimer, Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Penelope Wilton, was nominated for an Oscar in 2006 for original screenplay. 2006 film “Scoop” stars Allen, Hugh Jackman, Johansson and Ian McShane.

WestEnd was co-founded by Eve Schoukroun, Maya Amsellem and Sharon Harel-Cohen, the founder of Capitol Films. Its line-up includes “Shepherds and Butchers” by Oliver Schmitz, starring Steve Coogan and Andrea Riseborough,
Woody’s women arrive behind the director in a big bustling caravan – a noisy train of flakes and nymphs, art snobs, academics and intellectuals, hookers, healers and harpies. Allen’s own nebbish persona aside, women are easily the most recognisable roles to come out of his films: Annie, Hannah, Jasmine. Female actors in his films have won no fewer than six Oscars. At the same time, few directors have drawn as much fire for the typology of female characters they have established onscreen.
“Increasingly, the women in his movies can be divided up between menopausal nuts and coltish sluts,” noted James Wolcott in Vanity Fair in 1998, after Celebrity completed a trio of films, beginning with Mighty Aphrodite,
In a role that suits his laconic, rum-soaked rhythms nearly as well
Sometimes, in other movies, when Williams himself dialed back and attempted to portray some likable everyman, he, too, seemed to blur a bit, radiating vague sincerity and niceness but not always suggesting an actual human being. Now, in The D...
