From Small Time Crooks to To Rome With Love and every 21st Century Woody film in between, ranked by our expert panel.
Took part in this. I had “Match Point” on top because it’s the best.
"To Rome With Love" is minor Woody Allen, but even minor Woody Allen is still Woody Allen. There are laughs and wry observations and biting satire in the film — and then two storylines (Allen’s own and the section involving Penelope Cruz) that go nowhere. Too bad he didn’t make one movie about Alec Baldwin, Jesse Eisenberg, Greta Gerwig and Ellen Page. (P.S., Page plays the best horrendous soul-sucking phony this side of actual reality.)
Got to breathe the same air as Woody Allen during a press conference for “To Rome With Love” this week. Career highlight! Click here for some observations from the event.
