Woody Allen - You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger (2010)

I was in the niche minority of those who actually liked Whatever Works (Despite Evan Rachel Wood's horrendous and annoying overacting), and although it could be labeled a "chick flick" thought Vicky Cristina Barcelona was one of his better works of the decade. They're no Annie Hall or Stardust Memories, but they're still pretty solid movies and his newest is no different. The best way I can describe his latest film, You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger, is that it is to Husbands and Wives like what Match Point is to Crimes and Misdemeanors. Similar themes such as failed relationships, adultery, and unrequited love make up the marrow of this one. It's Woody Allen doing what he does best, and proving that after 45 plus years, despite a few duds here and there, the man still has it.
