After taking a fresh look at the DVD of Manhattan, it's apparent that this isn't Woody Allen's greatest film. However, it is easily his most beautiful, with breathtaking black & white vistas of the titular city set to Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue." Too bad Allen's lusty, pedophilic tale of lust (over Mariel Hemingway, no less) doesn't hold a candle to the scenery. Still, worth watching. The sound is optional.
