Husbands and Wives ★★★★½

Mish mash of styles particularly beholden to handheld roving cam but also a probing 70s interview thing, does wonders for this observational farce about coupledom and the idea that we'll never be happy.
Clearly Allen riffing on Scenes from a Marriage. Neeson and Juliette Lewis are two of the best non-Allen foils to ever appear in his films and elevate this to a more aspirational and consequently more emotional experience than usual.
