  1. Sahand Mohajer's rating of the film Irrational Man

    Is this a Dostoevsky satire? The direction is so terrible, never had seen JP force a performance like this one. Woody Allen seems out of touch with life, engulfed in literary cliches. The whole chance thing felt weak and disingenuous.

  2. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Irrational Man

  3. Madeleine Davis's rating of the film Irrational Man

    "if you learn nothing else from me, you should learn that much of philosophy IS verbal masturbation" and so WA affirms that where there is a will to incessantly self-reference, there is a way~

  4. Richmond Hill's rating of the film Irrational Man

    Rather reheated in many respects - refer to Crimes and Misdemeanours for a less contrived nod to Dostoevsky and practically any other Allen for the older man/younger woman relationship - and lumbered with an unconvincing central device (of which everyone seems to have an inexplicable interest). Allen is rarely less than watchable but this is a very pallid affair despite - or because of - the existential pebbledash.

  5. Doe Deer's rating of the film Irrational Man

    would've been a lot more enjoyable and interesting if it had been written and directed by a younger Allen - whom I suspect has been replaced by a doppelganger based solely on the amount of commonplace and shallow dialogue presented here

  6. Francisco Mouraz's rating of the film Irrational Man

    He is good, she is not. The movie is meh.

  7. Flavia Loayza's rating of the film Irrational Man

  8. Fabiano Sasselli's rating of the film Irrational Man

    Dialogs were not very plausible, quite surreal . I didnt liked the performance of Emma stone. But i enjoyed Abe. I laughed often event though the film was noto intender to ne funny. Entertaining film but nothing special. Could have been so much more.

  9. Mahda Purmahdi's rating of the film Irrational Man

    As Abe points out in one of his classes, "So much of philosophy is just verbal masturbation", and so is Irrational Man's take on ethics of murder, banality of evil, problems of chance and choice, etc. Unlike Match Point, Allen forces the problem of chance and choice on the film. The choice is not dramatized because Abe and Jill are not much of characters, only puppets uttering Allen's big words.

  11. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Irrational Man

  12. ruzica's rating of the film Irrational Man

    This was so shallow and plain, but fun enough to enjoy it all the way.

  13. Bertrand Queysan's rating of the film Irrational Man

    I hate this more than I hate myself. Emma is bae tho

  14. Diderot's rating of the film Irrational Man

    At first glance, this seems like simply re-hashed material that Allen has already done much better in earlier films. But I don't tire of his Crime&Punishment permutations. This one might be the most self-reflexive of the series: a depiction of the ultra-bourgeois reassurance that accompanies a privileged cynical nihilism. I think there is a faint note of contempt present in the tone of this movie.

  15. Rodrigo's rating of the film Irrational Man

    Perfectly illustrates what makes most Woody Allen films so boring and jaded to me. Frivolous and snobbish dialogues, no real character, action or feeling and, therefore, no humanity.

  16. Daniel Garcia's rating of the film Irrational Man

  17. tintinmugshot's rating of the film Irrational Man

    Match Point, Part 2. Without the tennis and the countryside atmosphere. And without Scarlett.

  18. Inês M Almeida's rating of the film Irrational Man

    'The dizziness and anxiety had disappeared and I was happy and enjoying the joy of living.'

  19. Balthaz21's rating of the film Irrational Man

  20. Atzin Ortiz González's rating of the film Irrational Man

    Yet another Allen interpretation/rehash of Dostoyevski led by an always impeccable cast. Pleasant but forgettable. But oh, Parker Posey, how I adore you and how I enjoyed savouring you in this minor Allen film. My wish goes to be casted in one of his greatest latest future efforts.

  21. N. C.'s rating of the film Irrational Man

    at least I guess he tried to break his own cliche

  22. Bogdan Liviu's rating of the film Irrational Man

    What an almost garbage movie! The philosophical references were at best for teens who want to feel smart, quotes from some writers that every decent - however ignorant - man knows about. It basically hugs your desire to watch "smart, profound stuff", but there's no depth in it, just superficiality and bad taste. It saves the day saying that Dostoyevsky "got it", but overall, I expected a whole lot more from W. Allen.

  23. Bob's rating of the film Irrational Man

    Using philosophy and literature as a tool to jump from one genre to another so that irony and paradox could lower down lofty themes of morality and existentialism to a level of self-preservation and banality. It's like making a satire of something serious to make serious out of something that is supposed to be a satire. A love letter to Allen's filmography in general with perfect casting of Joaquin Phoenix.

  24. Diogo CF's rating of the film Irrational Man

    I gave up on this film as soon as Phoenix's character imposed his pedestrian "critique" of Kant's ethics on a student. What followed was an endless stream of dreadful sub-Cioran angst, with Allen's insufferable tendency towards name-dropping. "Match Point" was a much more tolerable Dostoievskian piece. This one's comical at best.
