    Not great Woody, but good enough Woody. The production feels a bit rushed here, everything from the writing to the cinematography to the production design feels like it could have gone through another pass or two. I believe this was the film Allen was shooting while Robert B. Weide's documentary on him was in production, so perhaps his priorities were focused on the latter. There's a wide range of performances here, the women are great, I'm still crushing hard for…

    Another in the continuing line of Woody Allen mid-brow films, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger shows the writer-director simply treading water, waiting for the next big project and idea to come to fruition before he actually commits to giving a damn about his product. Surprisingly enough though, the film has enough decent elements about it to almost recommend, which makes it at least stand out from the crowd of other middle of the road Woody Allen comedies.

    Most…

    I'm not normally one for enjoying films of this genre, but i found this charming, funny and honest. I loved the european feel to it and also the colours and tone of the film. I really enjoyed that two of the main characters were older people, and the way that they saw relationships. I am now inspired to watch more of Woody Allen's work.

    Divertissant avec que de bons acteurs qui y vont à fond, mais malheureusement, c'est quand même peu mémorable ou prenant.

    Woody Allen’s fourth London-based comedy-drama, You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger, should be released with the following consumer advice: warning – this film has limited cultural references. Does Allen really know anyone in contemporary London who has consulted a fortune teller? Or even, for that matter, a young Anglo Indian woman who has an affair with a married blocked American novelist? Allen could use a decent script reader, not to mention some jokes and a challenge to his myopic…

    Too fraught to be hugely enjoyable and too derivative of the far superior Husbands and Wives to offer any unique dramatic pleasures. The characters are largely unlikable but it's not clear if that's because Allen doesn't know quite what to do with someone when they're neither an intellectual creative or light comic relief, or if it's just that people are most arseholes and this film takes a ruthlessly emotionally honest approach to their portrayal. As it settles in my mind…

    Ok, the only absolutely certain prediction for the future is that, sooner or later - hopefully later-, we all gonna meet the gentleman of the title.

    But here Woody, despite his known apathy towards metaphysics and the concept of God, recognizes their possible positive aspect. You see, some people just need an illusion to go on and there's nothing wrong with that.

    When the promiscuous Charmaine gets pregnant, Alfie wants a DNA test to confirm his paternity, but she refuses the test because she finds the child's paternity irrelevant.

    After their separation, Gemma relies on Cristal, a fortune-teller with dubious connections to the afterlife, to guide her in her new…
