Critic Reviews for Wild Man Blues
Kopple's discreet, quietly revelatory style creates a fine balance between public and private personae that veers more pointedly toward the personal in an incongruous but fascinating coda.
It provides some generous insights into his psychic background when his unsupportive parents greet him back in New York at the end.
It's hardly a revelation, but Allen emerges as genuinely neurotic. He's also funny.
In her unexpectedly delightful documentary about Woody Allen as jazz musician, Barbara Kopple demonstrates cinema verite at its most seductive.
Wild Man Blues has a tendency to become repetitious, especially during the final forty minutes.
Audience Reviews for Wild Man Blues
It's great to see Woody in his natural habitat - his neurotic tendencies, his anxiety, and most particularly, his love for Soon-Yi. She's a lot smarter and prettier and nicer and more talkative than I envisioned her. I totally get why this film was made, but it doesn't seem like a PR stunt. It seems to genuinely want to answer some hidden question.
