Woody Gets All Serious

At 70 years old, Woody Allen finally gets his way. In past interviews he always spoke of his admiration for serious dramatic filmmakers like Ingmar Bergman and now it looks like he may be in the same category. Past attempts like Another Woman and Interiors resulted in luke warm responses. Could this be different?

After seeing the trailer for Match Point, Woody's latest, I have to say I'm intrigued. I mean, a trailer is a trailer. It could resemble everything a film is or absolutely nothing depending on what demographic the studio is trying to hit up (e.g. King Kong with the ladies, paahhleeeze). The Match Point trailer is a little amped up for any Allen film but it looks like it has the markings of a new direction for him. It might be worth a look.

Never rule out Woody. He always has a little something up his sleeve. But then you wonder if you like it or not. But who cares - at least you are wondering.

No, I don't think you can. I mean it is one of the things I like about him and his career. The fact that he makes his films that attract major ensemble talent and they tend to make little money but he keeps making them. That's what an artist does. I mean the guy has made 41 films!
