What is the movie Crimes and Misdemeanors about?
In “Crimes and Misdemeanors” Woody Allen again firmly holds the reins, writing, directing, and co-starring in it. In this existential comedy drama he is paired with Martin Landau as we follow the tales of their moral and philosophical quandaries. Landau plays Judah Rosenthal, a successful ophthalmologist and a respectable family man who is having an affair with Dolores, a demanding flight attendant. Dolores is frustrated that Judah shows no intention of leaving his wife for her. She threatens to tell her all about their affair, and one day she sends her a letter in which she reveals it all. Judah manages to intercept the letter, but begins to see that the Dolores situation is getting out of hand. Seeing how Dolores might jeopardize his overall well being, he begins to consider some less ethical, more permanent solutions. Woody Allen is Cliff Stern, a small-time filmmaker. Cliff is forced to work on a documentary about his much more successful television producer brother-in-law whom he despises so he could have enough money to finish his other project. He falls in love with his brother-in-law’s production assistant and tries to woo her, while turning the documentary into an absolute mockery of his hated brother-in-law. His other, more significant project falls through when its subject commits suicide. He is also once again proven that his nemesis is simply more successful than him in every respect, and that it’s probably his own fault. In the end, Judah and Cliff have a chance meeting and have a conversation which reveals how their respective experiences have shaped their entire outlook on life.

Not much has to be said. This is an outstanding film, possibly one of the best films I have ever seen. All performances are perfect. Half drama, half comedy, and that very well done. It has deep thoughts about quilt and mistakes, lots of truth about relationships. It has laughs and a perfect ending. Every time I watch this film I just want to sit down and write, just write something interesting to leave behind. The film is already 16 years old and you won’t notice that at all, it's one of those films that never age. I would recommend this movie to anyone who doesn't want to spend another two hours of his life watching yet another Hollywood crap.

Woody Allen has taken the exhausting drama we are used to seeing when we turn on drippy television programs, and used those as a device for satire. We get examples of just what he is poking fun at when his character takes relatives of his to the movies. In such scenes, we see and hear snippets of black-and-white melodramas with strikingly similar plots to the one in this film itself. Only Woody Allen could have made such a film.
