Celebrity in black and white
on 22 June 2003
Woody Allen in black and white, after "Shadows and Fog" (1992) to tell the stories behind celebrity. New York, nowdays, as a stage, as a puzzle of dazzling characters trying to be celebrities or trying to live as celebrities. Almost playing themselves, a numerous cast with great actors: Kenneth Branagh, Melanie Griffith, Judy Davies, Joe Mantegna, Leonardo diCaprio, Winona Ryder and Charlize Theron.
The movie is a reflexion about fame, about famous people and their behaviours to the public and in private. Woody Allen has done better, like "Radio Days" (1987) but the excelent cinematography and Woody's touch are always good arguments.
Unfortunately, Woody Allen doesn't appreciate special features...
