Information and Film Reviews for Crimes & Misdemeanors the Movie

Staff rating

Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

One of Allen's most mature films, exploring a whole range of moral ambiguities through the parallel and eventually interlocking stories of a nebbish filmmaker--who agrees to make a profile of a smug Hollywood TV comic and then sabotages it--and an esteemed ophthalmologist who is being threatened with exposure by his neurotic mistress. Intriguing mix of drama and comedy few directors could pull off. Look for Daryl Hannah in an unbilled cameo.
