I am a bit movie fan and so I have decided to write reviews about the movies that I watch. I tend to watch two or three a week and also end up watching a fair amount of Disney.
This weeks pick is a movie directed by Woody Allen. It is called Crimes and Misdemeanors and is a comedy drama that was released in 1989. It appears on Empire magazine`s poll of the 500 greatest movies of all time.
It is a story of infidelity and murder, mixed with lighter elements of comedy, and follows a cheating husbands attempts to escape from his infidelity and keep his wife and family in the dark.
I felt it was very well acted and it kept me interested throughout. The main story was gripping but I felt the Woody Allen / Alan Alda comedy dialogues were a bit stilted and forced. However it is definitely one of his better films and well worth a few hours of your time.
Rating – 7/10
