Movie Review

Vicky Christina Barcelona dir.Woody Allen — 7.7

How do you review Woody? It's Woody. That's pretty much it. Although this film is a step above a lot of what he's put out the last ten years. I found the voice-over to be sort of a lazy storytelling device and it grew tiresome. But there's fantastic shots of Spain, the usual frank discussion of the meanings of relationship and sex. There's good performances by Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem. Actually they make Scarlett Johannson and whover played the other girl look like college amateurs in their first production of Guys and Dolls. Woody's stiff for Scarlett has brought down a number of his films, but that's him in a clamshell, isn't it? The guy can't help himself and never could. Great title. And some really good ruminations of the nature of compatibility. Made me want to sell everything and move to Spain yesterday.
