Sadly, much of this ends up being the usual neurotic bitching, frequent in Allen films. He also tends to copy Fellini a little too closely, although this alone isn't the problem. The problem is he drags out scenes too long, which never go anywhere. And when the film is over, you still have absolutely no idea what the point Allen was trying to make in the first place. The laughs are also too far and few in between (the best is the opening scene spoofing the opening of 8 1/2). If their is any compensation, it's Gordon Willis' impressive B&W cinematography. That's about the only thing that holds your attention.
