"Cassandra's Dream" A hard one.
Woody Alen's latest movie is a hard one to talk about. If I only
wouldn't see "Before The Devil Knows You're Dead" this would be easier.
The acting is superb, Colin shines here, McGregor is great too. The way
the film is shot is good. The sound and the feel is real. All well
until we turn the road to the script. Sometimes it gets stupid,
sometimes it gets just wrong. "Before The Devil Knows You're Dead" and
"Cassandra's Dream".... hmmmmm witch one is better? I hope Woody's next
film will be a lot more original.
So witch one is better... The acting is in both great, but if I had to
pick one of these two, I'd pick "Before The Devil..." PS: Both movies
have bad endings, I know what the message was, but the way they did it
is a bit stupid.
Movie Master Says: NOT BAD, WATCH IT IF YOU NEED TO KILL SOME TIME 6/10.

Great underated movie .
Woody's film making is top form, his script isn't
Woody Allen's dark drama of two brothers who get in over their heads
financially and in turning to an uncle for help find themselves going
down a road they will undoubtedly regret. Well acted and well made
movie by the Woodman gets lost about half way in as the film parallels
some of the darkness of his earlier films. Even allowing for the self
borrowing the plot only goes so far before it begins to skid. Ya know I
can't really explain it with out saying too much. I will say that the
end left me cold, not so much for what it was, rather for how it was
done. Ultimately I think I'm mostly annoyed since Woody Allen has hit a
level of film craftsmanship with the last bunch of films that would be
the equal to Clint Eastwood's current run except that Woody can't get
manage to write a script that works all the way through..
