Seeing is not believing: 'Magic in the Moonlight' (Woody Allen - 2014)

Allen's Magic in the Moonlight

Woody Allen with his style of film making reminds me often of Milan Kundera with his style of book writing. Of course, in both cases the sense of humour may be little different (but on the other hand not too much), but a certain sense of irony and some peculiar and a little depressive persuasion in the matter of life’s pointlessness make these two somehow alike in my view.  363 more words
