Woody Allen's altar is the art of filmmaking, and Stardust Memories is his crisis of faith.

Woody Allen pays tribute to Fellini's seminal 81/2 in this stylized, self-reflexive, often irritating feature.

Allen never seemed more indulgent, posturing, or physically repulsive -- and yet all the film's many strengths lie in its anatomisation of this nasty display.

Though there are laughs along the way, this is a truly mean-spirited picture.

With its blunt, artless angst, the picture leaves you feeling depleted, squashed.

Time Out

One long cry of anguish about the price of fame comes perilously close to self-pity. And self-abuse.

An overlooked Woody Allen gem

October 23, 2004
It's the first Woody Allen film in which impotence has become the situation rather than the problem. This is a movie about a guy who has given up.

Invokes the mood of an early Fellini film as it swirls through the troubled recollections of a film director, played by Mr. Allen.

Woody Allen does Fellini -- and the result is one of his best films.

Woody Allen rips off 8 1/2, and the results are often funny and visually intriguing.

Woody the pretentious; has some moments, but overall it's too self-conscious.
| Original Score: 2/5

It is a fairly brutal and stylized account of the miseries of a famous comedian/director.
