It's not Dostoyevsky, but neither is it a shopworn trifle. It is, if you will excuse the literary metaphor, a good read.
September 4, 2009
By no means is this lukewarm drama Woody Allen's worst work, but it's no dream, either.

Everything is utterly disengaged

Farrell and McGregor bring much to their roles...to make Cassandra's Dream an effective and chilling ride.

Cassandra's Dream is, in fact, not the worst film in the Woodman's oeuvre. But it does tend to underline his weaknesses.

It's enough to make you pine for the good old days -- back when life was only partly ironic and Woody was totally funny.

Woody Allen still insists on making movies at the rate of one a year, but he clearly needs to slow down. A lot.

These characters not only don't talk like working-class Londoners, they don't talk like anyone.
October 18, 2008
Disappointing, badly overwritten drama from Woody Allen, rendered almost unwatchable by dreadful Cockney accents from McGregor and Farrell.

At this point, I guess we should just applaud Allen for his work ethic.

By the time the blokes played by McGregor and Farrell get around to confronting their misdeeds, they're the only ones who care.

Allen is notorious for not giving his actors explicit instructions, and yet somehow this worked wonders for Farrell, who has never seemed so naked, so clear and so unencumbered as he does here.

The problem is, you don't feel the human sweat and strain in Cassandra's Dream, despite game work from Farrell and McGregor. There are plenty of ideas and themes and no people of distinctive interest to enliven them.

Although all the performances are remarkable, the actors can't break free from the too neat-and-tidy script.

October 18, 2008
A clumsy, clichéd morality play that may actually represent the lowest point of Allen's recently chequered career.

Woody Allen's neurotic-speak works wonders coming from a New Yorker, but coming from a Brit? Not so much.

August 29, 2008
The writing is terrific as are the performances by Colin Farrell and Ewan McGregor who play brothers with dreams beyond their means.
August 27, 2008
This is Colin Farrell's best work in years and proof that Woody Allen is an old dog, and these are new tricks.

Every Woody Allen movie becomes an occasion to discuss what went wrong with Woody Allen movies. My own theory is that Allen simply became too efficient at getting his movies made %u2014 he works quickly and cheaply and he never has to convince his backers

Woody Allen vuelve sobre ciertos temas de algunas de sus mejores obras (Crímenes y Pecados, Match Point), pero esta vez sin una gran historia que los sustente.
