|laughed more at Midnight in Paris than with it. dont know what most of these critics were thinking. i appreciate woody's foray into magical realism but the situations and the dialogue were wooden and corny. also, the richer woody and his characters get the more unrelatable theyve become.
Agreed. But this is the first real success for him in a long while. He needed a big win. I saw a recent doc and was surprised in his distance in the production process.
Agreed. Bill, which doc?
Currently rereading "Conversations With Woody Allen" by Eric Lax. Interviews with the author from 1973 through 2007. The multitude of projects broken down into chapter form, All phases of the process, from the idea to the production, edit and scoring.
It might have been American masters.
I liked it.
Saw blue jasmine today. Not what you'd call a comedy, but still had some decent yuks. CB's fine acting marches you through the process nicely. The seniors in the matinee audience talked frequently through the film. I think this makes 4 in theater films in 4 years w the woodman. Expect to continue at this rate.
