    Starts out strong with Scorcese directing the tale of an obsessive artist - played to perfection by Nolte. Then we have some boring, meaningless mush from Coppola. And we finish with Woody Allen on form in a tale that could be called "Mother Knows Best".

    This film really seemed to open up the concept of the combo film: having a bunch of film makers produce shorts on a common topic to make a memorable whole. Unlike successes like Paris Je t'Aime however, this one has too many rubbishy pieces to the whole.

    New York Stories have two good tales: Life Lessons by Scorsese and Oedipus Wrecks by Allen. But Coppola's Life Without Zoe, it's terrible, boring and totally disappointing. The worse thing in the movie is Coppola being with others great directors. The 70's was a terrific time to Francis Ford and his classic pictures that gonna be unforgettable in cinema history, but all change in 80's and this status of master stay really weak. One of this disasters is the short film Life Without Zoe in New York Stories, and what make the movie be not very good. Scorsese and Allen save the picture... but not enough.

    New York Stories is a fun picture mad up into three stories directed by three directors. Martin Scorsese directs Life Lessons, Francis Ford Coppola directs Life with Zoe, and Woody Allen directs Odipus Wrecks. Each one is unique but sadly the let down is with Coppola's piece Life With Zoe. Scorsese's version is the best based on Dostoyevsky's The Gambler and Allen's Odipus Wrecks is funny and sometimes weird. Overall I would recommend this picture.
