Cassandra's Dream Reviews
Not as bad as most people are claiming - a decent enough thriller which is excellently cast as always for Mr Allen, however our two main leads aren't as compelling as Jonathan Rhys Meyers in Match Point and the overall execution is something to be desired PARTICULARLY with what seems like a forced shakespearian ending which could have easily been earned but Woody drops the smooth landing. Still though, cudo's are in order for Woody again giving us a down to earth crime thriller even though he has done superior efforts in the past - as many, we wished he frayed in the thriller genre more often in his filmography
What language are they speaking?
What Woody, what?
The acting and the directing is all great here, with solid shades of Hitchcock. Interestingly this is only the second Woody movie to have it's own original score, this time by composer Philip Glass. While it's not a perfect film, it is a very taut, tense thriller worth checking out.
