Vicky Cristina Barcelona
Vicky Cristina - one of Allen's recent best
I caught this gem four years late - not sure how I missed it. Along with 'Match Point' It's one of Woody Allen's best in the last twenty years. Set against the beautiful backdrop of Spanish villages added some nice flavor to Allen's usual mastering of ambiguity and crafty writing. Fresh off his incredible 'No Country for Old Men' performance, Javier Bardem delivers again. Great chemistry with everyone on the set and Penelope Cruz's performance definitely merited her the awards she received and then some. Well worth renting or even buying.
