Live-ac­tion:

  • (one of the best noir films; Ex­ley is par­tic­u­larly in­ter­est­ing as nei­ther hero nor an­ti-hero)
  • (re­view)
  • (a lame waste of time; not re­motely funny nor in­sight­ful nor ren­dered suffi­ciently in­ter­est­ing by the now-ex­otic set­ting of 1960s Catholic Italy, as the mak­ing of 8 1⁄2 is Fellini’s ex­cuse for mak­ing 8 1⁄2 in a third-rate break­ing-the-fourth-wall ex­er­cise)
  • (a few one-lin­ers aside, Woody Al­len’s neu­rotic hu­mor is un­bear­able to watch. It would seem that Allen movies are not for me.)
