" Celebrity" (Woody Allen, 2002) A lot of prominent beautiful people have fun with the outlandish behavior of celebrity in Woody Allen's nebbishy black and white film. Kenneth Branagh plays Woody in this one and you just want to slap him. "Stop with the tic's, already!" It feels a lot like "Crimes and Misdemeanors" and "Hannah and her Sisters," so it's Woody writing "like Chekhov" as one of the characters says. He must have just got done reading "The Grasshopper" on this one. Still its nice to reconnect. The last film I saw was "Manhattan Murder Mystery." Been awhile. Nice to see that not much has changed.
