By no means is this lukewarm drama Woody Allen's worst work, but it's no dream, either.

Everything is utterly disengaged

Cassandra's Dream is, in fact, not the worst film in the Woodman's oeuvre. But it does tend to underline his weaknesses.

It's enough to make you pine for the good old days -- back when life was only partly ironic and Woody was totally funny.
October 18, 2008
Woody Allen still insists on making movies at the rate of one a year, but he clearly needs to slow down. A lot.
October 18, 2008
At this point, I guess we should just applaud Allen for his work ethic.
October 18, 2008
Disappointing, badly overwritten drama from Woody Allen, rendered almost unwatchable by dreadful Cockney accents from McGregor and Farrell.
October 18, 2008
These characters not only don't talk like working-class Londoners, they don't talk like anyone.
October 18, 2008
By the time the blokes played by McGregor and Farrell get around to confronting their misdeeds, they're the only ones who care.
October 18, 2008
The problem is, you don't feel the human sweat and strain in Cassandra's Dream, despite game work from Farrell and McGregor. There are plenty of ideas and themes and no people of distinctive interest to enliven them.
October 18, 2008
Although all the performances are remarkable, the actors can't break free from the too neat-and-tidy script.
October 18, 2008
A clumsy, clichd morality play that may actually represent the lowest point of Allen's recently chequered career.
October 1, 2008
Woody Allen's neurotic-speak works wonders coming from a New Yorker, but coming from a Brit? Not so much.
August 25, 2008
Every Woody Allen movie becomes an occasion to discuss what went wrong with Woody Allen movies. My own theory is that Allen simply became too efficient at getting his movies made %u2014 he works quickly and cheaply and he never has to convince his backers

Woody Allen vuelve sobre ciertos temas de algunas de sus mejores obras (Crmenes y Pecados, Match Point), pero esta vez sin una gran historia que los sustente.
July 16, 2008
Although McGregor and Farrell produce some occasionally spirited moments, particularly in the earlier scenes, they are little more than walking and talking schemes, their choices based entirely on socioeconomic impulses.
June 2, 2008
Two years after Match Point, Allen delivers another London-set murder melodrama, with diminishing returns. [DVD]
May 1, 2008
While Allen's Match Point was an interesting switching of gears ... his new mantle of Patricia Highsmith-esque crime chronicler is wearing thin as well.
February 8, 2008
For those who remember [his Allen's classic films] Cassandra's Dream seems like the work of an imposter.
