Anmeldelser fra kritikere

Even if the film ends on a downer, it remains a fundamentally hopeful film, one that owes as much to Preston Sturges’s egalitarian Sullivan’s Travels as the meta-cinematic tricks of Buster Keaton’s Sherlock Jr. In one final wrinkle of reality and fiction blurring, the director tweaks Sturges’s story so that the pretentious, insecure artist who needs to be reminded of the joy that “common” movies give audiences is Allen himself.

Woody Allen’s warm-hearted, mid-80s excursion into Pirandello-esque metafiction is one of his most joyous works, despite being shot through with a current of sadness that never dissipates… Daniels works wonders with a difficult dual role that requires him to sublimate elements of one part (the actor) into the other (the character), while keeping both distinct. Nic Cage-and Charlie Kaufman, come to think of it-were certainly both watching closely when they made Adaptation.
