Cassandra's Dream certainly wasn't one of Woody Allen's highest grossing movies of all-time. But is it worth a rental?
With the movie coming out on DVD tomorrow, we posed that question to a number of film critics. Their answers are below...
- Cassandra's Dream lacks energy and spark. Monotonous and simplistic, it is definitely not worthy of Woody Allen... -- Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)
- Allen, who stays behind the camera, brings too little wit and too much contrivance to material that quickly dissolves into warmed-over Dostoevski... -- Rolling Stone
- Cassandra's Dream is second-rate Allen, but it's still compelling thanks to its magnetic co-stars... -- The Washington Times
- Farrell and McGregor deliver remarkably nuanced performances in and through their mundane one-dimensionality, taking average Joes and give them average strengths and weaknesses... -- Christianity Today
