PROS –
1) A movie following 2 major sub-plots. An accomplished ophthalmologist’s extra-marital affair and a two-bit film-maker trying to start one.
2) Prof. Louis Levy sermons.
3) Woody Allen in his usual self with funny one-liners. Lester’s documentary rough-cut was hilarious.

 
CONS –
N/A

 

QUOTE –
Clifford Stern: Listen, I don’t know from suicides. Y’know, where I grew up, in Brooklyn, nobody committed suicide. Y’know, everyone was too unhappy.
