  2. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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'.

  9. alchimia's rating of the film The Purple Rose of Cairo

  10. 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.

  12. Steve Pulaski's rating of the film The Purple Rose of Cairo

  13. 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

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Mr. Marston's rating of the film The Purple Rose of Cairo

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

    Light entertainment based on a witty concept. Got to admit I didn't like the cast at all.

  18. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film The Purple Rose of Cairo

    ..2016 le cinéma, monde de l'illusion, de l'évasion. W.A. avec tout son talent. !

  20. miles's rating of the film The Purple Rose of Cairo

  21. Andrew Miller's rating of the film The Purple Rose of Cairo

    The on-screen hero lacks the ruthlessness of the Hollywood hack who plays him-- Allen's bitterest joke.

  22. OldGermanCurrency's rating of the film The Purple Rose of Cairo

  23. Karthik's rating of the film The Purple Rose of Cairo

    Although the du jour high postmodernist clichés (à la John Barth) of plot (factitiousness of facticity) and dialogue (author as god, fashionable cinephilia etc.) wear the look of faded regulation brocade, the fabulously leggiero pacing and the friction it creates against the dispirited image and the wan-raggedy-babydoll-with-a-squeak-of-spirit look of Farrow (one of her looks) still pleases and sometimes delights.

  24. HSBilly's rating of the film The Purple Rose of Cairo

    a great satire of cinema, reality, acting, hollywood and of course in the end, its a satire of escapism.
