MAGIC IN THE MOONLIGHT
Same old same old Allen magic
Emma Stone and Colin Firth in a scene from Magic in the Moonlight.
Roughly the 600th film written and
directed by Woody Allen, this Jazz
Age existential comedy has him
reshuffling his usual deck of cards.
Colin Firth stars as Stanley
Crawford, a misanthropic conjuror
who sets out to discredit Sophie
Baker (Emma Stone), a self-styled
psychic plying her trade among
expatriates in the South of France.
All the latter-day Allen trademarks
are here: pretty scenery, warm,
diffused lighting, Dixieland tunes,
lengthy master shots, familiar-
sounding one-liners, along with
repetitive philosophical debates
pitting illusion against grim truth.
Like many of his scripts, this one is
haunted by the ghosts of various
classic works of fiction -- including
Henry James' Daisy Miller, in which
the protagonist puzzles endlessly over
the free and easy ways of an
American girl abroad.
Magic in the Moonlight is not
liable to change anyone's mind about
Allen, not that he, in turn, could care
less about his detractors. The fact that
Stanley performs his magician act in
yellowface, with a bald cap and a
drooping moustache, tells you all you
need to know about the film's attitude
to political correctness.
Then there's the age gap between
the leads, which Allen pretends not to
notice. More generally, the film is a
fantasy about a disillusioned older
artist brought back to life by an
encounter with beauty and youth.
Love him or hate him, there's no
denying that Allen remains an utterly
personal, idiosyncratic filmmaker.
Part of the fascination of his late work
is that each film involves a tussle
between his romantic and cynical
In this case, romance triumphs --
and for once, a woman retains the
Best of all, Allen has finally found
a leading lady with a gift for comedy
(something that could hardly be said
of his previous muse, Scarlett
Johansson). Stone's huge green eyes
seem boldly sketched, even
cartoonish, as does the toothy smile
that's always about to break out.
When she strikes spiritual'' poses
-- looking modestly downward, or up
and far away -- the effect is almost that
of a parody of Katharine Hepburn,
implying a scepticism that turns the
period setting into a joke in itself.
The State Hermitage Museum in
St. Petersburg is one of the
largest, oldest museums in the
world -- 3 million treasures and
more curators than any other art
institution. To mark its 250th
anniversary the museum opened
its doors for the filming of
Hermitage Revealed -- a cinematic
event that is a must-see for all
fans of art, architecture and the
culture and history of Russia.
The city needs heroes. Darkness
has settled over New York City
as Shredder and his wicked
Foot Clan have an iron grip on
everything from the police to
The future is grim until four
unlikely outcast brothers rise
from the sewers and discover
their destiny as Teenage Mutant
Ninja Turtles. They must
unravel Shredder's evil plan.
WHAT WE DO IN
A hilarious vampire comedy
from the creators of Boy and
Flight of the Conchords.
Flatmates Viago (Taika
Waititi), Deacon (Jonny Brugh)
and Vladislav (Jemaine
Clement) are vampires trying
to get by in modern society,
from sticking to the housework
roster to going to the disco.
Except they're immortal and
must feast on human blood.
