Somewhere between "Wild Strawberries" and "8 1/2", it's as classical Woody as you can get. And still, even if you can say the same for at least five more of his films, there is still a dose of freshness and good humor, even if 90's Allen was a grumpy old geezer who would rather write about his issues than be personally engaged with them (like in Annie Hall or Manhattan). It may not be as subversive, but I bought it.
It's my least favorite Woody Allen's movie I've seen so far. Harry the main character is an unlikeable asshole and I could barely stand him through the whole movie. But maybe that's the point. I like the occasionally hysterical dialogue and the "deconstructing" sequences. The literally out-of-focus guy story is brilliant. And the lowest-level-hell scene is absurdly amusing. Think I should give it a rewatch next time.
'Desmontando a Harry' es el perfecto ejemplo de una película que solo podría crear Woody Allen. A pesar de ello, no tiene cuenta con tanto renombre como 'Annie Hall' o 'Manhattan' (caso similar a 'La última noche de Boris Grushenko'). Tiene un ligero tono experimental, -sin embargo es mucho más entretenida que 'El dormilón'- especialmente en cuanto a la edición, la cual queda a la medida de su historia y personajes.
