Perhaps Allen is now less like Bergman than he is like, say, Clint Eastwood, in the way he makes films to escape the kind of persona he used to have in films.
September 5, 2019
Some movie-goers bewail that Woody Allen is turning his back on comedy. Comedy or tragedy, I regret the fact that he is turning his serious cinematic attentions on women.

A fascinating character study, mostly free of Allen's trademark neuroticism, yet ripe with some of his most astute introspection.

One struggles to find something to admire in this slight, wintry, austere film.

This melancholy drama is a tender, complex and affecting character study of a woman caught between middle-age regret and marital resentment.

Though not one of Woody Allen's strongest films, this Bergman-like psychological melodrama is too self-conscious and contrived, but the cast, headed by Gena Rowlands and Gene Hackman, is good.
March 23, 2009
Superbly written and directed by a film-maker at the peak of his creative power, and with a sublime performance by Rowlands to match, this film has not a joke in sight.
March 23, 2009
Film that emerges is brave, in many ways fascinating, and in all respects of a caliber rarely seen.
March 23, 2009
Nykvist's photography is impeccable, as is Loquasto's spare production design.
March 23, 2009
A piece of posturing phoniness designed to awe spectators who like their psychodramas third-hand and upscale.

Mr. Allen is becoming an immensely sophisticated director, but this screenplay is in need of a merciless literary editor.

Commercially ignored and critically unheralded even by Allen's own falling standards, [the film is] a sensitive, accomplished, and ambitious picture that deserves notice.

Not Woody's best. He gets serious and that's usually not a good sign.

Sometimes emotionally disengaging, but generally an intelligent Bergman-esque study of one woman's quest for fulfillment.
