“Who else but Woody Allen could make a movie in which virtue is punished, evildoing is rewarded and there is a lot of laughter? The movie generates the best kind of suspense, because it's not about what will happen to people—it's about what decisions they will reach.” —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“It has the richness and breadth of a novel, told with the concision of a densely packed short story…The film cuts back and forth between parallel incidents and between present and past with the effortlessness of a hip, contemporary Aesop.” —Vincent Canby, The New York Times

Woody Allen’s Crimes and Misdemeanors (1989) is a rare combination of film noir and black comedy, about an esteemed New York ophthalmologist (Martin Landau) whose affair with a flight attendant (Anjelica Huston) puts the careful construct of his life in jeopardy. As he contemplates a permanent solution to his problems, we are also treated to an interwoven story about another kind of moral crisis: a struggling documentary filmmaker (Allen) considers selling out by making a doc about a Hollywood jackass (Alan Alda), with the situation further complicated by the appearance of an entrancing TV producer (Mia Farrow). Highlighted by cinematography from the incomparable Sven Nykvist, the film was nominated for three Academy Awards®.

i don't consider this good news.

Twilight Times! That means EXPENSIVE !! and not necessarily quality to reflect that price either.

i wish another distributor had won the rights to this.

Can't wait to hear how the transfer looks. I love this movie but $30 is pretty steep for my budget.

Most distributors would not find it profitable. Most that would would save you maybe,maybe 2 to 3 dollars if that.

Kinda sucks when what you know about actors in real life intrudes on the movie you're watching, isn't it? I have the same problem watching any Mel Gibson movie these days.
