      Alec B One of Allen's most beguiling movies. His script is atypically mysterious and the brilliant performance of Rowlands along with the beautiful cinematography only add to the atmosphere. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/24 Full Review Jeff M I know it's not a popular sentiment, but Woody Allen is my favorite filmmaker of all time. I believe his run of movies from the late 70s to the mid 90s, with a few missteps along the way, is unparalleled. And this mesmerizing drama may be the least known masterwork of his repertoire. I fully understand why some will find this pretentious - characters refer to German poetry and the works of Rilke and stagings of Mother Courage. The characters are upper-middle class WASPs who are heads of philosophy departments and cardiologists. And yet, I have watched this motion picture repeatedly and find myself absolutely transfixed every single time. Without getting too personal, part of my fascination is that I relate on many levels to the main character portrayed by Rowlands in a brilliant performance that definitely should have been Oscar nominated. It's a deceptively complex role because she is constantly protected by the psychological armor she uses to protect her from digging too deeply into her own psyche to acknowledge what lies under the surface. There are scenes here almost too uncomfortable to watch, including one with Betty Buckley as a jilted ex-wife and one with an amazing Sandy Dennis as a former best friend who admits their parting of ways wasn't accidental. I'm generally not a fan of narration in movies, but this is one of the rare occasions where it enhances what we're watching rather than lazily filling in the gaps of what we're missing. This is the farthest thing from a feel-good movie, but the ending provides a glimmer of hope and anticipation for the future. It's one of Woody's best unheralded gems. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/22/24 Full Review steve d One of Allen's best. Still bad. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review william d Not one of Allen's best in my opinion. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review jaime h Perhaps the most underrated film in Woody's oeuvre. This is a brilliant film. An adult film. This is not a film by a funny man that you can sit back and wait for the laughs.

      Richard Combs Sight & Sound Perhaps Allen is now less like Bergman than he is like, say, Clint Eastwood, in the way he makes films to escape the kind of persona he used to have in films. Jan 17, 2020 Full Review Variety Staff Variety Film that emerges is brave, in many ways fascinating, and in all respects of a caliber rarely seen. Mar 23, 2009 Full Review Jonathan Rosenbaum Chicago Reader A piece of posturing phoniness designed to awe spectators who like their psychodramas third-hand and upscale. Mar 23, 2009 Full Review Rene Jordan El Nuevo Herald (Miami) Indefensible. [Full review in Spanish] Jun 29, 2022 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy At 80 minutes, Another Woman is too short to lend full support to Marion's crisis of character and conscience, although another 15 or so minutes of Allen's unusually affected dialogue probably wouldn't have moved the needle much. Rated: 2.5/4 Apr 10, 2022 Full Review Kathi Maio Sojourner Some movie-goers bewail that Woody Allen is turning his back on comedy. Comedy or tragedy, I regret the fact that he is turning his serious cinematic attentions on women. Sep 5, 2019 Full Review Read all reviews
