It's not Dostoyevsky, but neither is it a shopworn trifle. It is, if you will excuse the literary metaphor, a good read.

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

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 writing is terrific as are the performances by Colin Farrell and Ewan McGregor who play brothers with dreams beyond their means.

This is Colin Farrell's best work in years and proof that Woody Allen is an old dog, and these are new tricks.

Taken for what it is, and without hoping for another Match Point or Crimes and Misdemeanors, Cassandra's Dream is a fine genre film that succeeds at what it attempts, even if it doesn't attempt all that much.

CASSANDRA'S DREAM is a slow moving character thriller, that isn't always surprising, but for me was very involving. Woody has done it again!

There is an effortless artistry in this film that may have deceived many. It looks like a trifle but it packs a punch.

The film stumbles in its convenient, obvious plot turns, even if much of this is meaningfully thought-provoking.

Farrell and McGregor try their best to infuse their shallow characters with potent dramatic spunk, but it's basically Allen's typical neurotic hand-wringing nerds with tacked-on British accents.

There are shivers of humor from time to time, but the mask in place here is the mask of tragedy.
February 28, 2008
Allen comes to the nature of God's omnipresence so often, without varying on either his question or his answers, that his films have increasingly become copies of earlier works, degrading in quality further and further from the original with each successi

Cassandra's Dream is not a top-notch Woody Allen film, but this dark drama is a worthy addition to the director's career-long search for meaning in a world where randomness and cruelty often reign.

February 7, 2008
Like Match Point, [it] seems very sharp and focused; for better or worse, it lacks the tangents that both lightened up and diffused the tone in Scoop. That also means that there's not a moment of humor in it.
February 3, 2008
Cassandra's Dream is second-rate Allen, but it's still compelling thanks to its magnetic co-stars.

McGregor and Farrell deepen this slight thriller into a film that feels almost grandly philosophical, even though you know that when the lights come on, the spell will break

It's alive with energy and ideas, not to mention good old-fashioned suspense and tragedy.

January 23, 2008
Woody Allen has a history of hits and misses in his directing career. His latest effort falls somewhere in between, although the film is actually a lot closer to his better work.
