... the finished product feels like a lot of individual performances that don't quite fit together.

If Allen remains besotted with the same types of angsty mavens going on five decades now, this dress may be familiar, but it's a custom number made only for Kate Winslet.

A high level visual that fascinates even when dramatic interest comes late. [Full Review in Spanish]

Pacing deficiencies apart, it knows how to engage the audience, stealing a piece of our heart with sweetness and sense of humor, and destroying the other half of us with melancholy and discomfort. [Full Review in Spanish]

Wonder Wheel is the reheated leftovers of better films, elevated by some truly extraordinary camera work by a legendary cinematographer.

If matters outside of film making mean this is one of (Allen's) final movies, it's a flat note to go out on.

Regardless of its confused perspective, Wonder Wheel is Allen's best and best-looking film in years. It's far from perfect, but it's hard to ignore.

Do yourself a favor and just watch "Blue Jasmine."

Of course not all films need to be profound analysis of the human condition, but Allen fails to deliver at least an entertaining melodrama.

Wonder Wheel emphasizes standard Allen-isms like guilt, fate, jealousy and betrayal, giving his detractors ammunition to say he's just making the same movie again and again.
June 27, 2018
Although we are mercifully spared an Allen stand-in on-screen, many uncomfortable traits and many old-fashioned ideas about men and women do persist.

There's a lot to like in Woody Allen's Wonder Wheel, despite the erratic and loose moods that betray its period charms.

The reality is that the director with his prolific career, has simply exceptional films, and... [Wonder Wheel"] is not one of them. [Full review in Spanish]

Winslet puts up a spirited fight, but the part is too obviously a retread of Cate Blanchett's in Blue Jasmine, itself a retread of Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire

The film's look evokes the 50s flashbacks in Annie Hall, but it's joyless, clumsy stuff, pastiche Clifford Odets.
March 12, 2018
It looks great but the stagey dialogue grates and the plot leaves a bitter aftertaste.
March 12, 2018
Allen was no doubt aiming for the luxuriant melancholy of a Douglas Sirk film or the brash sleaze of Vincente Minnelli's Some Came Running. However, there's an oily, deep-fried quality ...

There is nothing wonderful here, apart from Kate Winslet.
