  1. VincentVendetta's rating of the film The Purple Rose of Cairo

    There's a good little absurdist sketch in the middle of this, with fictional characters waiting for the story to progress, but it's surrounded by a vapid celebration of encyclopedic cinephilia, with the most sorry, miserable excuse for a main character. It's more successful at replicating sets and memorabilia than finding the spirit of the era. If you've seen a single Lubitsch, you already know better.

  6. Dalibor's rating of the film The Purple Rose of Cairo

    Honest, borderline corny, love letter to prosaic movie going, another sequence of director's personal escape from Industry and a bittersweet criticism of it. And even though it's one of the rare ones where he doesn't play a part, Jeff Daniels character can be seen as Woody's take on dichotomy of his (non)fictional characters and himself.

  11. Duncan Gray's rating of the film The Purple Rose of Cairo

    Allen isn't to be trusted when it comes to philosophical depth, and Purple Rose barely has enough story to fill 80 minutes. But it has lovely whimsical melancholy, and it's worth noting that, self-absorbed as he is, this is a rare film from that period with no "Allen" character, just a love letter to Mia and to moviegoers (but not Hollywood). Final coup: turning a Fred and Ginger puff pastry into something poignant.

  12. Draughtsman Without Contract's rating of the film The Purple Rose of Cairo

    'I've just met a new man. He's fictional; but you can't have everything'.

  14. José Neves's rating of the film The Purple Rose of Cairo

    re-rating. From the life of characters in a world of fictional inventory of imaginary lives through distinct and intersected layers, making realize that life's dream is a dream living within a dream, which is life itself. Dream as materia and allegory of cinema. The great final shot of Cecilia/Mia Farrow is the constitutive durability of this perception, although she's also a character, just like us, organic unicity.

  17. eek's rating of the film The Purple Rose of Cairo

    Great idea, not such a good execution. I had high hopes for this Last Action Hero prequel :D

  18. Adèle Vivet's rating of the film The Purple Rose of Cairo

    C'est le film de Woody Allen qui me laisse la moins indifférente. Un conte amusant, bien filmé, et dont on est capable de se souvenir.

  19. Leif Erikson's rating of the film The Purple Rose of Cairo

    You can't learn to be real. It's like learning to be a midget.
