Wow. Twilight Time's first 3D release. Very interested to hear from
Bob Furmanek about Man In The Dark and how it fares with the classic
I love the older Woody Allen films, but willing to give (what I presume to
be) his more serious movies The Front and Crimes and Misdemeanors
Ronald, Crimes and Misdemeanors is probably unique for Woody Allen in that it's a half-and-half film. There are two parallel stories which don't meet up until the end, one is fairly typical funny Woody (like Annie Hall, Manhattan, etc), whilst the other is black-serious, though both examine the same themes.
For me, Crimes and Misdemeanors is his best, most complete film, though I'm sure we all have our own favourites.
If you like his funny stuff you'll like the funny story, and that'll probably be a good way to appreciate the other story - that's just my point of view.
