ANOTHER WOMAN (1988)
Needless to say ANOTHER WOMAN is not a happy film. It's not as depressing as Allen's last film, SEPTEMBER, but it's no walk in the park either. Intimate photography by Sven Nykvist, a steady pace, strong performances by a great cast, interesting story. ANOTHER WOMAN has a lot of the ingredients to make an outstanding film, but instead it just falls into the "above average" category. I'm not sure exactly what it is, but it just doesn't have that magic spark to it. Not to worry though because Allen's next film CRIMES AND MISDEMEANORS is one of the greatest films of all time.
