Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Midnight in Paris (2011)

Directed by Woody Allen

Starring Owen Wilson, Rachel McAdams, Kathy Bates, Kurt Fuller


Whimsical and fun. The exploration of nostalgia and the Golden Age Fallacy is fascinating.

Wilson is great. He’s obviously playing the Woody Allen role: talkative and pensive and confused about his place in the universe. McAdams is cute but flubs a few lines. Nice performances by all the historical characters.

The wonderful photographic warmth gives the film a nice feel.

Might be one of my favorite Allen movies.
