Woody Allen’s Another Woman (1988)

May 8, 2017 | By

Woody Allen’s drama of hitting a birthday milestone and the self-reflection it spawns didn’t receive an exactly warm welcome in 1988 – Orion’s trailer follows their standard format in selling a comedic Allen picture, but it fails completely for this unique work – but Another Woman (1988) is a more successful attempt to fuse his brand of dry comedy, drama, and Bergmanesque qualities without being as earnest as Interiors (1978).

Twilight Time’s Blu-ray sports a fine transfer, and no doubt Allen must have been giddy to work with Ingmar Bergman’s main cinematographer, Sven Nykvist, resulting in three more collaborations – New York Stories (1989), Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989), and Celebrity (1998).

Coming shortly will be a series of reviews from the Toronto Jewish Film Festival, and if I can squeeze it into this week, a podcast.
