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.)
