March 22, 2011
Elaborately plotted, perfunctorily directed, unevenly acted and short on verbal wit.
March 17, 2011
It's interesting and worthwhile, with creative vitamins that are absent in so much of what fills the cinemas.
March 17, 2011
Frothy but uninvolving. Again.
March 16, 2011
There's plenty of ambiguous intellectual heft lurking behind the curtain of mediocrity - so it's a pity it feels like it was dashed off in a few hours one afternoon.
January 31, 2011
The talented cast fails to gel into a dynamic ensemble: You just see actors going through familiar paces.
December 13, 2010
Woody Allen cranks out another formulaic interweave of romantic crushes, with old jazz on the soundtrack to supply some artificial gaiety.
October 15, 2010
Classic Woody -- an ensemble cast of brilliant actors, a timeless story that could be set virtually anywhere and crisp writing and direction that neither lollygags or rushes.
October 15, 2010
Allen has been criticized for leaving some of the plot lines up in the air and several characters in the lurch. But he seems to be making a point: Neat Hollywood endings are as phony and dangerous as Cristal's ramblings.
October 8, 2010
Woody Allen may still be funny, but he's sure not much fun anymore.
October 8, 2010
It's a highbrow romantic farce, without the laughs.
October 7, 2010
It's as if the dour Interiors had been reworked by a more forgiving, generous filmmaker who wants to move beyond stereotypes and discover what he calls the "beautiful and ironic" aspects of life.
October 7, 2010
At once a cynical examination of infidelity and a sweet love story that rewards good people, Stranger is thoroughly entertaining ... and Allen's best film since Crimes and Misdemeanors.
October 7, 2010
[Allen's] latest has an empty, soulless feel.
October 6, 2010
Subpar, shoulder-shrugging effort from Woody Allen. He wastes an intriguing cast on this slight tale.
October 1, 2010
In the autumn of his career, toiling exclusively in Europe, Woody is like an aging cabinet maker still blessed with craft but grown erratic in design.
September 30, 2010
It's a meandering and rather aimless movie that would be considered trite if made by another filmmaker, and yet it has such a family resemblance to other, better Woody Allen movies that it's easy to stick with it and enjoy it.
September 30, 2010
Over-written and under-realized, it's Allen in desultory word-processor mode, barely able to muster even his usual amount of resigned cynicism about this crazy ol' life.
September 30, 2010
We never get a critical sense from Allen that this movie was worth making in the first place. It's a work of habit more than inspiration.
September 30, 2010
You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger is every frame a Woody Allen film, but it isn't very much more.
September 27, 2010
In his mid-70s and working mostly abroad, Allen has settled into a new groove. But it's not a deep or enlivening one. His despair has finally become weightless -- a reflexive shrug.
