Cid Medeiros's rating of the film Magic in the Moonlight

The only way for a reasonable person to feel pleasure in life is to get confused. Temporarily confused by doubts over human limitations and fish-water-changing-by-who sort of philosophical cliché... Unfortunately pessimism goes dancing with the fact, extract through reason, that: "happiness is not suitable for the human condition". The confusion Allen keeps going for is romance. The guy never stopped being romantic.
