Lacks most of Allen’s intelligent wit, but still has his subtle jabs at society
In “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger” we are swiftly introduced to the complicated plot with who is married to whom, who is cheating with whom, and who is in love with whom. I found that the slowest part. I wasn’t able to find much of Allen’s underlying comedy in all of the criss-crossing relationships.
The comedy comes with the arrival of Charmaine (Lucy Punch) – the “actress” that Anthony Hopkins is marrying. I found it interesting that at the sight of this most ludicrous relationship, the other characters, all at various stages of mid-life crises, then pushed forward to get their lives and relationships sorted out. Allen didn’t spend much time analyzing the various loves and consequences, more just saying here they are, you can laugh at them if you wish. I laughed a little bit.
I found that Anthony Hopkins and Lucy Punch stood out of this all-star cast. Hopkins’ character, nearing 70, married the much younger Punch and joined a gym after suffering his mid-life crisis. Antonio Banderas played a gallery owner and I was quite impressed with his subtle comedy and muted sexual presence. Josh Brolin played the neurotic writer that Allen himself would have played in earlier years. At first he seemed out-of-place, but I think that’s part of the joke, and like Banderas, I was impressed with his subtle comedy.
I am a Woody Allen devotee, and although I found “You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger” lacks most of his intelligent wit, it still had his subtle jabs at his characters who each represent facets of today’s society. And I still recommend it because it’s better than most other films you can find.
Funny, cool and philosophical. Another gem by the genius Woody Allen
You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger is another gem by the genius Woody Allen. The script is great and very funny, the casting is spectacular and the music is great, as always. A funny plot packed with jokes and philosophy (love, life and death). Woody’s films make life better. Thank you, Woody!
