Interiors (1978)

Interiors (1978): Interiors is considered Woody Allen's first "serious" movie despite coming out a year after Allen won Best Picture for Annie Hall. I guess Annie Hall would be one of the last "comedies" to win Best Picture, but I didn't find Annie Hall to be all that funny, either. Humorous, I suppose, but not so much of a comedy.

So, Interiors. Allen's first drama. To quote Men on Film: Hated it!

Seriously, I was bored. It can't be my dwindling attention span because the movie is only 90 minutes long, but maybe we can blame it on my lack of critical facilities since I'm currently enjoying the hell out of An Evening With Kevin Smith 2: Evening Harder. Clearly this says something about my ability to judge film.

With that said, however, Interiors is a dreary movie. Everyone talks quietly and slowly and with great deliberateness and it is supposed to sound important.

Gag me with a spork. I'd love to see Amy Poehler's "Aunt" (played, I believe, by Kristin Wiig) from Weekend Update review this one.
