Cassandra’s Dream

Posted by martinteller on January 25, 2009

Woody Allen retreading the same Dostoyevskian ground he’s already covered in Crimes & Misdemeanors and Match Point.  It’s definitely familiar territory, and with a script that feels far too functional and contrived.  But Allen takes it in a different direction at the end, so I give an extra point for that.  Ever since The New World, I’ve gotten over my Colin Farrell hate, and here he does okay (except for occasionally acting too much with his eyebrows) as does Ewan MacGregor.  Far from Allen’s worst, but even farther from his best.  Rating: 7
