Match Point was the longest Woody Allen film to date and the only one since Hannah and Her Sisters to make a profit in the US. Remi Adefarasin did perhaps the best job ever in filming a Woody Allen script. Scar-Jo does an excellent job of acting like a terrible actress. It was a very natural performance.

You have to watch Woody Allen’s new films twice just to overcome the disappointment that it isn’t as good as his old stuff. That said, Scoop is in the upper five of his last ten films. Also,Woody rarely out-acts someone, but Scarlett Jo is clearly out of her comfort zone.

  • If you were a guest programmer for TCM what three movies would you choose to best represent your tastes: Were talking classics, like, from the 80s right? Since I watched Ferris Bueller’s Day Off on TCM a couple of months ago I’m counting anything from the 80s and before. Casablanca (because it still holds up today as a compelling drama), Indiana Jones: Raiders of the Lost Ark (not just for nostalgic reasons), and The Jerk (for some nostalgic reasons, but also because it’s hilarious).
