Midnight in Paris Reviews

March 6, 2020
Midnight in Paris is a bit of a one-joke skit, carried out at length.

Mr. Allen's habitual romanticizing of the wealthy has grown stale and is especially problematic in this recession.

It's not a bad film -- it just could have been a lot better.

Sadly, this movie made me want to go back in time to a glorious period in New York City in the 1970s and '80s when a filmmaker named Woody Allen ruled the movie world.

A trifle filled with nostalgia and fantasy touristy fare.

Let's face it, Woody Allen makes some bad movies or at least only slightly entertaining movies. He might have been great in the past but that day has long gone.

Woody Allen attracts promising players and does nothing with them.

Minor ... a one-sided infatuation that always looks fancy, thanks to Darius Khondji's exquisite Parisian cinematography, but isn't as fanciful as its dreamy foundation suggests.

The opening and closing moments of "Midnight in Paris" are visually resplendent. The movie in the middle gets in the way.

A frail conceit that Allen fills out with humor that's surprisingly obvious and broad...a mildly diverting fantasy, executed without much style.

The groupie-like celebration of Allen's doubled-up cultural insecurity and ambition represents a global degradation of culture standards.

Pure Woody Allen. Which is not to say great or even good Woody, but a distillation of the filmmaker's passions and crotchets, and of his tendency to pass draconian judgment on characters the audience is not supposed to like.

Maybe if I paid more attention in high school English I'd get it.

It's far too ponderous. Still, it's not wholly terrible, and that's not something you can say about Allen's films very often these days.

As cinematic froth, Midnight in Paris passes the time prettily enough. But neither its characters nor its sense of place really stands up in the light of day.
