HOW THE RE­VIEW­ERS PANNED CAS­SAN­DRA’S DREAM

The Jewish Chronicle - - Arts&books -

“A suc­ces­sion of ill-staged scenes, mostly in­volv­ing static two-shots in which char­ac­ters look awk­wardly at each other as they ex­change ill­writ­ten di­a­logue” — Philip French, The Ob­server

“ This feels like it was knocked to­gether by com­plete ama­teurs” — Steve Rose, The Guardian “It is set in Bri­tain, where the light, Allen says, is ideal for his style. The light isn’t the prob­lem with Cas­san­dra’s Dream, how­ever. It’s the plot. And the script. And the

act­ing” — Ed Pot­ton, The Times “Leaden al­lu­sions to Greek tragedy only un­der­line just how pre­pos­ter­ously su­per­fi­cial this work is by com­par­i­son. Yes, it’s a tragedy, but not in the sense that Woody in­tended” — Chris Tookey, Daily Mail
