Wild Man Blues Reviews

Wild Man Blues has a tendency to become repetitious, especially during the final forty minutes.

An interesting documentary covering a tour of Woody Allen's New Orleans Jazz band. If you enjoy the music, or are a fan of all things Woody, then you should give this one a rental. Others probably wouldn't enjoy it.

What may surprise Woody's fans is that he is rarely funny in person and sometimes surprisingly inarticulate.

Here's hoping [Kopple] returns to more involving material now that the vacation is over.

The subject is Woody Allen, but anyone interested in his career as a writer, stand-up comedian, actor or filmmaker will learn little from Barbara Kopple's new documentary.

[Kopple] might seem an unlikely choice for this material, but no doubt her track record gained Allen's trust.

Not quite the type of political punchiness one would expect from Kopple, but it does answer a lot of questions about Allen who obviously had a strong hand in the film's compilation.

It provides some generous insights into his psychic background when his unsupportive parents greet him back in New York at the end.

If you'd like to see what 90 minutes of Woody's neurotic home life is like, punctuated by some clarinet blowing, this is the movie for you.

Craftsmanship and wit are as present here as in [director Barbara Kopple's] more socially-minded, dramatic work.

It is a most relaxed and enjoyable look at the neurotic comic, who appears to be no different in this documentary from the way he is in his films.

There is a quiet agenda here of keeping the personal relationship visible, natural, and low keyed.

Whatever one thinks about Woody Allen, you'll probably find it in here, except why Americans don't much turn out to see his movies.

If Woody Allen is unable to experience pleasure, he can rest assured that he continues to give it to his devoted followers.
