Critics reviews

Allen gives the impression that he is not so much interested in saving the world as in salvaging something for himself from the wreckage. This is his strength as a humorist and his weakness as an artist. But it has long been obvious that Allen was not going to replace Proust and Pirandello. Nonetheless I still find him funny and even congenial as an astute critic of film forms. Take the Money and Run is at the very least the definitive take-off on the cinema verité interview.
