Allen's cynicism rears its head in this movie quite a bit, and in many ways he pokes fun at his own audience, though I doubt his die-hard fans catch it.

Gordon Willis's too-dark lensing is an ideal match for the Scenes from a Marriage-inspired sequences of marital and amorous discord.

A film with a sharp look and some glinting lines. Still, it's the city that Isaac/Allen has a nostalgic faith in, not people, or love, or even the film itself.

Arguably this is Woody Allen's masterpiece, in which he revisits the themes of his bittersweet features and refines his distinctive serio-comic tone, not to mention Gordon's Willis brilliant b/w imagery and George Gershwin's evocative score.
