Crimes and Misdemeanors
My Rating:
(out of 5 stars)
1.5 Stars
Crimes and Misdemeanors Poster
Primary Location: First Saw: In Theatre Saw at/with: With Jessica
Rating: PG-13 Year: 1989 Category: Drama
Director: Woody Allen Time: 107:00:00 min. Writer: Woody Allen

Mine: Ick! Long (ok so it just seemed long), dreary, just yucky! I am sure that it is a brilian retelling of "Crime and Punishment" or some such classic story, but why did I have to see it. I don't recall any comedy, and much tragedy. Not really any simpathetic characters.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Film's title indicates the themes of two separate stories, which are neatly tied up in the final scene. Landau plays a married man who is desperate to cut off an adulterous relationship in this somberly tragic tale. Allen is an unhappy documentary filmmaker who's wooing attractive producer Farrow while making a film about her insufferably self-centered boss Alda, in a hilariously bittersweet story. Arguably Woody's most ambitious film, playing heavy drama against often uproarious comedy, and certainly one of his most passionately debated; a one-of-a-kind effort that only he could pull off. Daryl Hannah has an unbilled cameo as one of Alda's chippies.
