    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 Alfie (Anthony Hopkins) is reminded of his mortality, he begins a regimented exercise program and leaves his wife of forty years, Helena (Gemma Jones) for a younger woman, Charmaine (Lucy Punch).

    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…

    "Beware of a tall dark stranger if he comes ridin' into your town!" Yeah, they try to make this title sound really sexy and everything, but if Buck Owens hasn't already disheartened me to the term "Tall Dark Stranger", my experience with Woody Allen has taught me that there is going to be a particularly high degree of eccentric mania with this romantic tale. As if the sexual orientation of the lead in "Vicki Christina Barcelona" wasn't convoluted enough, with…

    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!
