There is no magic in theater during Magic in the Moonlight, the latest offering from Woody Allen. Although I’m a huge Colin Firth fan, as well as a fan of Emma Stone, both of them should have skipped this project. It was forgettable and anything but magical.
Multiple Sarcasms is not a great film, nor is it a particularly interesting one. I would much rather see an interesting failure than a boring one.
Have you ever wondered what you would ask Woody Allen if you were given the chance? Time took 10 questions from their readers and posed them to Allen in the following interview.
This TIME interview of Javier Barden gives us some insight into Juan Antonio, the man behind Woody Allen’s lead character in Vicky Cristina Barcelona.
Every year Woody Allen releases another film. He is never really out of the public’s eye. Just like Match Point, Vicky Cristina Barcelona broke from in Allen’s standard conventions. The themes in both films are reminiscent of Allen’s earlier work; however, they focus on a completely different type of character. Allen’s protagonists in both movies are not his typical, nebbish neurotics. Match Point focused on a skilled manipulator, and Vicky Cristina Barcelona focused on artists who view their lives as art as much as their canvases.
