David Denby on Woody Allen

David Denby, a film critic for The New Yorker, writes approvingly of Woody Allen’s new film To Rome With Love (opening here in Australia on 18 October 2012).  In the issue dated July 2, 2012, Denby describes the film as “light and fast, with some of the sharpest dialogue and acting that he’s put on the screen in years”.

However, one of the most insightful comments that Denby makes relates to the key to Woody Allen’s success – how the film-maker turned his weaknesses into career strengths, by “exploiting his own confinements (Brooklyn obscurity, shrimpy size, neurotic fearfulness, etc.)”
