The Artist in Hell

For those who love Woody Allen this movie will not displease. It has all of the elements that have made him a cinematic icon. If you doubt his artistic maturity, think back on movies like Bananas or Take the Money and Run, forgettable concoctions played mostly for laughs. Allen has clearly come a long way. Still, his movies virtually cry out for criticism, and there have been plenty of critics willing to weigh in. Roger Ebert, though generally admiring of this movie, offers the adjectives "vulgar, smutty, profane, self-hating, self-justifying, self-involved, tasteless, bankrupt and desperate." In truth, the artist in his eagerness for creative experiment has been known to try things that just don't work. Personally, I have never understood Allen's fascination with Ingmar Bergman. To me Bergman was insufferably self-indulgent, and without Allen's one saving grace--an unfailing sense of humor.
