    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Allen, who stays behind the camera, brings too little wit and too much contrivance to material that quickly dissolves into warmed-over Dostoevski. show more

    In thematic terms, Cassandra's Dream could be looked at as a rebuttal to "Crimes and Misdemeanors." show more

    Farrell is quite good, though it's hard to buy the Scottish McGregor and the Irish Farrell as brothers. But mostly, the film feels rudderless, almost as if it's been directed on autopilot. show more

    I kept looking at my watch for when it was going to be over.I love Woody Allen movies, but he should stick to [dark or light] comedy.I was hoping something was going to happen. At the very least kill the main characters to get it over with.
