Mineshaft Gap

It's a screening log, no more no less. Maybe I'll have something interesting to say one of these days...


I thought it was ridiculous when they said Match Point was one of Woody Allen's best films. It couldn't have been possible. But this is a film Allen has been trying to make for over thirty years. In finally succeeding at the drama his has always wanted to make, Allen has also crafted a brilliant thriller.

A bourgeois satire almost worthy of Godard, Match Point presents a group of morally bankrupt characters in an existential world. Reminiscent of Crimes and Misdemeanors, the tale of sin in a godless world is buoyed by great performances from Meyers and Johansson. In addition, it may be the most beautifully shot Allen film since Manhattan, with a tight construction and a wonderful screenplay. An excellent film.
