Woody Allen is decidedly New York (not a bad thing, we love New York, obviously) His movies are a love affair with the city and vibrate with its rythms. During his long career, he has given us some great films. Sadly, his recent efforts have left us wondering if, perhaps, one of the masters has lost his way.That can be put to rest now that we have seen his latest film, Melinda and Melinda. We admit, we went into the film with some reservations after Anything Else and Hollywood Ending. But it turns out, there was nothing to worry about at all. The film works.
