Landeau, Alda, Farrow,Huston, Allen. Woody really captures defeat, jealousy, and guilt with this 2 tier story and brings the 2 together
Lost me in the first half but the second half when it all comes together, it becomes a solid morality tale,
Woody Allen is trying to tell us that if Raskalnikov could have just kept himself from confessing, he could have had a clear conscience.
1 of Woody's best. Respected doctor wants to get rid of mistress. A film about moral choices-Does learning about right and wrong matter?
Woody Allen’s tribute to Crime and Punishment is fascinating albeit slow at some points
Interesting story about moral and the difference perspectives about it.
If you thought that Match Point was great, you should watch its origins
One of the best movies by Woody Allen. A moral allegory that won't leave you.
You can recognize Dostoyevsky's theme in the movie but it's getting deep with the comparison of bad and very bad deeds. Must watch.
