Just when you think you hit the bottom of the film, it ends up being a little more deeper than you thought. Its sit down interview style is unexpected, but appreciated, as it adds to the movie's realism.

Woody Allen goes Dogme 95 for his study of matrimonial disillusionment among the upper crust of New York's most parasitic intellectuals. This whole film feels like a dare on Allen's part to his audience on how long they can stand being sucked into a void of insufferable, insecure, middle-class vermin and pretentious impressionistic visuals before they deliriously cry out for their gods. Well, Mr. Allen, you'd be lucky if most of them lasted five minutes. And don't even get me started on Juliette Lewis. The woman doesn't act terribly; she plain doesn't act.

"Maybe in the end, the idea was not to expect too much out of life." - Gabe. Smart script, poorly executed film with a popular theme of marriage and infidelities. A story of two couples namely Jack (Pollack) and Sally (Davis), and Gabe (Allen) and Judy (Farrow). Soundtrack almost non existent, the documentary style of shooting was dizzying when doing close-ups and acting just felt rehearsed. Its only good point was the screenplay with lines: Judy - "Change is what life is made of! Change - if you don't change, you don't grow, you just shrivel up!" Sally - "You're great 'til you start to show your age - then they want a newer model." Husbands and Wives seems to intellectual and scripted to be entertaining and realistic. It doesn't show whether its a documentary, drama or comedy, …
