387) You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger (2010) Dir: Woody Allen Date Released: September 2010 Date Seen: November 26, 2010 Rating: 3.5/5
I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this. In terms of its broad beats, it's just more of the same of Woody's recent resigned but wan recent dramedies. But his empathetic dialogue frequently impressed me and the narrative's criss-crossing scenario is frequently immersive in spite of Woody's continued ill-advised use of voiceover narration and Josh Brolin's half-baked performance. Gives me hope for Midnight in Paris...which hopefully I'll get to see at Cannes! Yeaaaaaah.
