So I haven’t seen a Woody Allen film since Matchpoint, which I liked quite a bit. This one is fine. I liked the odd mix of artificiality and naturalism and that the stakes were low. This was a movie being a Woody Allen movie but also, surprisingly, offering a meditation on the phenomena of celebrity and reality TV. An easy hour and a half.
(This was also the first movie I’ve seen since being in Rome that “starred” the city. It was exciting to identify locations.)
