while this is a technicallyl well crafted movie, there was little else about it to enjoy about it. Timberlake was woefully miscast. All others turned in performances far above the material they were given.
There is simultaneously a beautiful movie and a good play hidden somewhere in Woody Allen’s new melodrama, Wonder Wheel, a slight and clunky period piece that offers teasing glimpses of something more rich and interesting.
It would be going too far to say Wonder Wheel is an instant Woody Allen classic, but it’s a reminder that he’s still a force to be reckoned with and a great director of actresses especially.
The warming affection that the director has bestowed on so many of his best characters is largely missing. In fact, he seems barely engaged.
