It's a pleasant little chunk of Allen's brand sure to lightly please fans and maybe a few others.

If Allen remains besotted with the same types of angsty mavens going on five decades now, this dress may be familiar, but it's a custom number made only for Kate Winslet.

A high level visual that fascinates even when dramatic interest comes late. [Full Review in Spanish]

Pacing deficiencies apart, it knows how to engage the audience, stealing a piece of our heart with sweetness and sense of humor, and destroying the other half of us with melancholy and discomfort. [Full Review in Spanish]

Regardless of its confused perspective, Wonder Wheel is Allen's best and best-looking film in years. It's far from perfect, but it's hard to ignore.
August 25, 2018
At times the dialogue feels a bit trite or maybe too familiar... But watching Winslet fully inhabit Ginny from despair to hope to despair again, is well worth it.

There's a lot to like in Woody Allen's Wonder Wheel, despite the erratic and loose moods that betray its period charms.
March 9, 2018
Winslet's stunning turn is worth a look if you can stand the consciously stagey feel.
March 9, 2018
A perfectly watchable film, but oddly devoid of jauntiness or wit ...
March 9, 2018
Kate Winslet delivers an incendiary performance (easily her best since 2008 in The Reader)...
March 8, 2018
Wonder Wheel sums up [Allen's] career nicely (this is not wholly a compliment).
March 7, 2018
This is an oedipal drama about shame, guilt and sexual betrayal. Allen throws in a few gags - but not very many.

So "Wonder Wheel" is a must for fans and all lovers of misanthropic comedies. For everyone else, this is a nice pastime of harmless movies, but nothing more. [Full review in Spanish]

We haven't seen [Jim] Beluish in such a display of skills for decades. [Full Review in Spanish]
February 6, 2018
A typical Allen ensemble piece, Wonder Wheel is nevertheless driven by a Blanche DuBois-like performance by Winslet.
January 13, 2018
Incendiary and disturbing, particularly in its outcome, we are perhaps facing one of the most melodramatic and pessimistic films of Woody Allen's career. [Full review in Spanish]
January 3, 2018
... a combination of drama, tragedy, romance, some comedy, a side of gangster thriller... [Full review in Spanish]
December 29, 2017
... Allen manages to change the hilarity of his universe by a deranged portrait of absolute desolation in which all narrative elements converge due to their own discordance. [Full review in Spanish]

Amid the fading romance of this Brooklyn amusement park, there's a wan lustre to the raging against the dying of the light by these weary, frazzled souls.
December 22, 2017
Cinematographer Vittorio Storaro expertly uses the shifting lights of Coney Island's attractions to mirror each scene's shifting moods. Allen's camera movement around Humpty and Ginny's cramped apartment is especially skillful.
