'Wonder Wheel' is a gorgeous looking film with terrific acting, but sadly feels uneven. It's more of a stage performance than a movie.
It's amazing to me that Woody Allen can bump out a movie each year and make it so rich and old fashion. Unfortunately the films themselves have become a faded memory for me, expect for 'Midnight in Paris'. I don't remember a single thing that happened in his previous movie 'Café Society'. This will suffer the same thing.
Allen making a love triangle around a woman and her stepchild isn't the smartest thing to do with his controversial past. You are literally putting light on your issues. Sometimes art itself can't spare it's artiest.
