You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger: What the other critics are saying

Click to follow

The Independent (2/5): 'A typical late Woody Allen picture, stilted, lightly cynical, dramatically inert, but will linger in the memory for Watts's turn'.

The Guardian ( 3 /5): 'It's interesting and worthwhile, with creative vitamins that are absent in so much of what fills the cinemas.'

The Daily Telegraph (3/5): 'It sounds like damning with faint praise, but Woody Allen's You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger is easily the best of his recent London-based films.'

Time Out (2/5): 'There's plenty of ambiguous intellectual heft lurking behind the curtain of mediocrity - so it's a pity it feels like it was dashed off in a few hours one afternoon.'

Daily Express (negative): 'You Will Meet A Tall Dark Stranger is a typically wry, rueful ensemble piece in which love makes fools of everyone.'

Empire (3/5): 'Still no signs of the master re-living past glories, but more than worthwhile for Allen diehards.'

Variety (negative): 'By now it's clear Woody Allen doesn't much believe in God, destiny or the notion that life has any larger meaning, a message he tubthumps to increasingly feeble and unpersuasive effect in You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger.'
