Rifkin’s Festival: Critical response

Showbiz 411It seems impossible but Woody Allen will be 85 in December and he can still do it, he can still make a trenchant, absurd, fantastically funny comedy that is on its face improbable but altogether winning.

New York TimesDawning awareness of one’s own irrelevance is not quite the same thing as relevance, but it’s a small breakthrough. And it’s infinitely preferable to 2019’s “A Rainy Day in New York”…

The Guardian – Still, by Allen’s lamentable recent standards, this fitfully entertaining film could be called adventurous, while the reliably cranky Shawn and a stately, vampish Gershon are clearly having a good time and letting us in on it.

VarietyWoody Allen’s Spain-set 49th feature doesn’t reverse the tired creative slide of his recent work, but it’s a painless diversion for the faithful.

Screendaily – Rifkin’s Festival raises a polite smile, and a warm recognition of the films Allen references, but never threatens anything more.

IndieWire – Despite fun turns from Wallace Shawn and Gina Gershon, Allen’s latest trifle is a bizarre, muddled comedy.

Wallace Shawn about the sexual abuse allegation

“I personally would have to say that it would take overwhelming evidence to convince me that he had sexually abused a child, just as it would take overwhelming evidence to convince me that Desmond Tutu, Franklin D. Roosevelt or Doris Lessing had sexually abused a child.”The Guardian
