    Admittedly, the first two acts are pretty bumpy roads, with the comedy and drama not coming as easy as they once did for Allen. But damned if the punchlines to every single one of the stories didn't make me laugh and wow me with how openly cynical and bitter they are (the end to Josh Brolin's story in particular). It's fitting that a few scenes borrow the jittery handheld photography aesthetic of Husbands and Wives, because that seems like its…

    Minor Woody Allen? No doubt about it. But better than most give it credit for.

    Hopkins gives a surprisingly subtle performance in this slice of (serendipitous) life dramedy that respectfully explores alternative spirituality. Brolin has a great face for film.

    Con You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, Woody Allen parece postular como falaz el mantra fake it 'til you make it, utilizándolo como hilo conductor para su irónica historia. A través de sus manías, contemplamos como cada uno de los personajes se acomete burlar cualquiera que sea el sistema que se impone ante su caprichoso deseo, enfatizando su medianía amorosa o profesional.

    Es claro que Allen desarrolla esto en todos los personajes –hasta en Charmaine y Ray, por ejemplo–…

    Woody Allen films are quite interesting. If you look at the director’s filmography, his films are incredibly similar and use many of the same storytelling devices, including some of the same characters – call it his auteur mark. Still, despite all of these similarities, sometimes the film just works, such as was the case with Midnight in Paris and Annie Hall, and sometimes they fall flat. You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger belongs to the latter category.

    The film…

    Wonderfully funny film about a group of self-centred, self-deluding characters who are almost Coenesque in their misguidedness.

    Loved it!

    Ben gek op Naomi Watts.
    De rest van de film deed het niet voor mij helaas.

    Even though it had an ambitious cast (as usual), this film was really dissappointing + the mother's role is extremely annoying.
    It would have been more interesting to learn about the lost son rather than hearing those weak and repeating conversations.
    The predictability of this film leaves you just bored.

    Lesser Woody, although I enjoyed the driving concept behind it. Late in the film it becomes clear that only one character, the more explicitly delusional character, is going to have a happy ending (at least within the space of the film), ambiguously vindicating the otherwise detracting commentary on fortune telling. This is a theme that Woody has grappled with again and again this decade, most directly in his latest effort Magic in the Moonlight, so we may have this film…

    I love the way Woody Allen explores relationships, it feels very real for the viewer and I can usually relate to the characters. It was also refreshing to see some great British actors being used for this London based film. Enjoyed this a lot better that some of the very average Woody films I saw last year.

    "Actress, my foot! The only acting she's ever done is faking an orgasm."- Sally

    You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger features an excellent cast and the always competent Woody Allen behind the camera. This makes for a pretty good movie. There are multiple storylines going on which are all connected and I enjoyed each of them. The film is nowhere near Woody's best work, but it's good. 7/10
