Another Woman Reviews

January 17, 2020
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.

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

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.

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.

Nykvist's photography is impeccable, as is Loquasto's spare production design.

Rowlands' perfectly pitched approach to a demanding role is particularly stunning.

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

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

Celebrates the honesty and courage needed by men and women at midlife to face up to the truth of things and then to change.

The storytelling is fluid and dramatic -- almost theatrical -- the film glows with light and the design is economically artful.

Film is the most voyeuristic medium, but rarely have I experienced this fact more sharply than while watching Woody Allen's Another Woman.
