Crimes And Misdemeanors Review


After Annie Hall, this is categorically Woody Allen's best film. A great ensemble production, Allen's primary tack follows a successful opthamologist (Martin Landau, perfectly cast), who reluctantly decides to murder his mistress when she threatens to blow the whistle to his wife. A parallel story follows a putz documentarian (Allen), who is roped into making a documentary about a boorish sitcom producer (Alan Alda). In the end, everybody loses, but Allen's neurotic outlook on life has never been presented with more clarity.
