Wonder Wheel Reviews

March 10, 2018
A thinly plotted misfire that gets on the nerves rather than under the skin.
March 9, 2018
Winslet's stunning turn is worth a look if you can stand the consciously stagey feel.
March 9, 2018
Amazon Studios has clearly got more money than sense if it didn't realise a cast of self-obsessed characters yapping on endlessly about their problems would be a cinematic turn- off.
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
Winslet seems to be fighting a war against Allen's direction, and everything goes to pot.
March 8, 2018
The plot and the structure undercut the affection Allen has for his salt-of-the-seaside characters. The writer-director falls in love with a tidy narrative arc that ends up more like a vicious circle.
March 8, 2018
Wonder Wheel sums up [Allen's] career nicely (this is not wholly a compliment).
March 7, 2018
There is lots of expository dialogue and characters saying lines like: "I've become consumed with jealousy!"
March 7, 2018
Wonder Wheel and its recent predecessors suggest that Allen is not just out of favour but out of ideas. You get the feeling that, one way or other, time's up.
March 7, 2018
This is an oedipal drama about shame, guilt and sexual betrayal. Allen throws in a few gags - but not very many.
March 5, 2018
The whole feels contrived, mannered and very, very routine - Allen again flogging his ironic predilection for mixing would-be creatives with criminals. The shame is that the film contains a superb performance by Winslet ...

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]

The best that can be said about this dull, overlong project is that it is at least pretty to look at.
February 26, 2018
We haven't seen [Jim] Beluish in such a display of skills for decades. [Full Review in Spanish]
February 21, 2018
Woody Allen has many ups and downs in his directorial career, and this is definitely in the latter category.
February 20, 2018
Wonder Wheel is an unpleasant movie about unpleasant people, and only Kate Winslet's standout performance and Vittorio Storaro's camera work keep it from being wholly unwatchable.
February 6, 2018
A typical Allen ensemble piece, Wonder Wheel is nevertheless driven by a Blanche DuBois-like performance by Winslet.
January 31, 2018
It's not much, but perhaps it will reach fans of the octogenarian director. [Full Review in Spanish]
January 17, 2018
If last year's Cafe Society was fairly acceptable, Wonder Wheel is a bland exercise and a disappointing ode to Coney Island, New York.
