David Valkenet’s review:
I know this has a pretty solid reputation among Woody Allen fans, but I'm sorry to say I found it turgid and overly self important.
It never really breaks free of its obvious Bergman influence, and lacks that certain something that makes Bergman not only great, but engaging and compelling.
Nothing was really bad but it was definitely a bit dull and a slog to get through.
Also, at times Woody Allen's dialogue, when not making me laugh, can definitely come off as contrived and forced.
