Reds and Apocalypse Now, Vittorio Storaro, and full of long, sharp tracking shots. This is a great cast, also including Parker Posey and a cameo by Twin Peaks' Sheryl Lee. Even Stewart, though not exactly a surprising scene stealer, was more than capable and certainly superior to her time in those Twilight movies. The old Hollywood stuff lends itself to some nice moments and costumes, but this movie doesn't get caught up in tribute like Midnight In Paris; it's just focused on the effective, if familiar, story. You've seen all these themes in Allen's work before; but it's still an excellent execution.
an MOD thing like they did with Wiener-Dog. But no, they promptly issued DVD and blu-ray releases through Lions Gate. In fact, the blu is a combo-pack, so I can give us an SD/ HD comparison, too.

Lions Gate has given us an excellent release of a very good film. Sure it's light on extras, but it's Woody Allen; that's par for the course. So besides that, there's not much more you could ask for than what we've got. Now, hopefully they'll give us a physical release of Crisis In Six Scenes. If not, I'll see you all here next year for Untitled Woody Allen Project 2017.
