This review is from: Shadows And Fog [DVD]  (DVD)
This one is absolutely awesome. This movie is a must see for anybody who don't despise Woody Allen (either you love him or hate him, luckily I'm among those who love him) This film has such a great mood. The filming, the light, the scenography, in fact anything technical in this production is so perfect that you can sit back and be mesmerized by a very uneasy, yet hilarious plot. It is shot in black and white, which actually help the mood. Alot. This film would be nothing but any other comedy had it been shown in color. And the acting of people like John Malkowich, John Cusack, Woody Allen, Jodie Foster and Mia Farrow are so impressive that when the show is over, you can't help but feel alot better. Actually you can, about everything. When I watched this with my dad, we both were dead tired after a week of little sleep and hard work. But after this movie, we actually woke up, and stayed up for hours.
Trying not to reveal to much of the plot, I will say that it involves a strangler on the loose, and the complications Kleinman (Woody Allen) get's into when he is included in a group of vigilantes who's looking for the murderer, and about a circus performer (an incredibly cute Mia Farrow) and her problems when she runs away from the circus, and try to find her way in the city.
As I said unless you really has nothing but loathing for Woody Allen, you're actually doing yourself a real favor if you see this. It really is brilliant.
And for those out there who hate Allen and his films. What the heck is wrong with you?

Very silly review. Some people, like me, do not either love Allen or hate him, but quite like him.

The review is not silly, it is GOOD!!.....however, the statement "you either love him or hate him" is perhaps somewhat silly since there is an in between state as pointed out by yourself. For me, I fall into a fourth category and that is one of admiration for a genius in our time.
