Crisis in Six Scenes (2016)

brody-woody-allen-radical-chic-1200

Basically a very long version of one of those very average-to-mildly okay Woody Allen movies we get three or four of before a great one comes along. It looks nice. And I enjoyed Woody Allen and Elaine May as a (very unconvincing) married couple more than I probably should have. I’m honestly surprised Woody didn’t embrace the format more. Why not actually stage six very long play-like scenes? It’s hardly structured at all, just…stretched out. That being said, the three hours fly by thanks to the zippiness of the acting and (admittedly obvious) dialogue. There definitely should not be a second series ever but as a one-time-watch I enjoyed zoning out with it. Stick to the day job Woody.
