One of Allen's finest offerings!
25 August 2019 | by anzafeirSee all my reviews

This is one of the best that Woody Allen has offered us in the last 15 years or so, on par with films such as "Vicky Cristina Barcelona" and "Midnight in Paris". First of all, New York and Manhattan in particular have probably pictured more picturesque with those cosy shades of sepia and the moody rainy environment captured masterfully by Vittorio Storaro, one of the great cinematographers, a real living legend.

This film would go down as one of the highlights in the career of the new promising actors and actresses such as Timothée Chalamet and Elle Fanning, also Jude Law, Liev Schreiber, Rebecca Hall and Diego Luna offer greatly amusing performances, while Selena Gomez provides good proof that she has a solid acting talent as she confronts Chalamet in a few funny instances.

The story as a whole is one of Allen's typical themes, presenting a naive college girl dazzled by the film star society of the Big Apple and soon she betrays all love and loyalty to her young lover who desperately tries to reconnects to her on a rainy day in New York.

Woody Allen, shows great nerve and style in directing, there's solid fast tempo that holds the story interesting and tight without a single dull moment. There are of course those greatly inspired one liners that add extra laughs and wit to the story. All in all, one of the finest films that Woody Allen has managed to offer in the last 10-15 years!

And now, just one small note to the "me too" or whoever else tries to censor arts: You are the people's WORST nightmare.

Only Fascists and Stalinists in the past, tried to censor or forbid arts and we all know very well how much hatred they gained just because of these actions. Well done "me too" activists, your similar hated actions have placed you in the most hated part of mankind. Great achievement!
