9/10 Moveable Feasts

The best kind of tourism any city could ask for.

Wasn’t expecting it in the least, but say hello to my favorite movie of the year so far. Makes me wanna tackle that Woody Allen marathon like you wouldn’t believe. Anyway, really great stuff, see it if you can, and hit the jump for the full review, homies!

    I absolutely j’adored this movie. It’s easily Allen’s best in the last decade or so– on the surface that’s not saying much, though, since it doesn’t take much to be better than You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger or Vicky Christina Barcelona. The truth is that it’s just a great movie on its own merits, a loving bit of tribute to one of the world’s greatest cities and some of the greatest artistic minds of all time, and a contrast between cold, purely scholarly appreciation of and genuine passion for art on the side. Paris is just as much a character in the film as Gil, which I love, and Wilson himself turns out a really fantastic performance as the Allen surrogate. One of the best of the year thus far.

      I need to watch more Woody, and while I was crazy about Match Point, this is far and away my favorite movie of the year so far. Went and read The Old Man and the Sea as soon as this was over and all I want to do is jump back and get educated on the greats of that era. Loved Paris, loved Wilson, just a magical, fantastic movie through and through, and so glad to hear someone else agrees with me.

      And I wasn’t crazy about Vicky Cristina Barcelona either, glad I have someone else to confide in about that.

    A romantic comedy to get a more than 7 starts out of 10 is unbelievable!!
