Crisis in Six Scenes is set to arrive on September 30, 2016 on Amazon.
I forgot this was even going to come out. The prison joke was awful, but this will be great.
We'll see. I actually thought Cafe Society was one of his best in recent years.
Miley Cyrus was in the best film of last year, so if you believe in trends, that is a sign.
The Night Before was not the best movie of last year...
But yet, surprisingly still very good.
I believe he's referring to A Very Murray Christmas.
That was considered a film? And a good one at that?
I like it quite a bit. Sofia Coppola is always worth watching.
To get on topic, I don't know that I can reconcile watching a Woody Allen project. I love the casts of Irrational Man and Cafe Society but I just can't bring myself to watch them because of Allen.
yeah I think I'm in the same boat, I actually did watch Cafe Society and there were some uncomfortable moments given Woody's past, plus the whole financially supporting an abuser thing though
Haven't seen Cafe Society yet, or a number of Allen's films for that matter, but this looks like something I might enjoy.
Indiewire gave this a pretty scathing review, basically said Woody wasn't even trying and just did it for the money.
Early interviews with him when this was announced may back that up
Woody Allen says he regrets Amazon series
He has not had a complete disaster since Anything Else. It seems that this one is universally disliked.
The hurricane made it difficult to finish this, but the cries of how bad it was are mostly overblown. It is certainly an awkward pairing for Allen, but it is less than two and a half hours long, so it is really just a long movie cut in six. Allen has always specialized in short and concise films, so this does begin to feel like padding at times, especially waiting until the second episode to set up the central plot. Allen playing his famous character again has been so rare in the last ten years that it is some of his best physical comedy when he and the wife are trying to escape the police. As a project, it does not stand up to Allen's great films by any stretch, but it is an enjoyable enough experiment.
Watched the first episode and though this was alright. Not much happened, but it sounds like things pick up a little in the next one. I'll probably watch the rest this week.
