Critic Reviews for September

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (1)

One of Woody Allen's weakest, most static films, inspired by Ingmar Bergman's serious dramas on the one hand and by Lana Turner's scandalous life on the other.

Some of our best actors turn dreary on us in this creaky, overly self-analytical drama.

November 17, 2004
Las Vegas Mercury

A creaky, cramped, theatrical stinker of a movie.

Apollo Guide

Has a Chekhovian flavor in its considerations of love, mother-daughter relationships, family secrets, and aging.

Audience Reviews for September


Slow moving and all takes place in one location, but very well acted and a good drama about relationships within a family. One of Woody Allen's better movies.

There are a few great moments, and Mia Farrow's performance is amazing but the film never really brings it home. Allen was trying to make a "modern Chekov" story, and while he gets a lot of those elements right, the film just doesn't have the same soul as Chekov's plays did.

Probably one of my least favorite of the Woody Allen movies.
