""Stranger" doesn't have the fire and mortal wit of "Vicki Cristina Barcelona," but it's certainly in Allen's upper echelon of work over the past decade. And that's quite an echelon. If you like Woody, this is a must-see."
Washington Post man didn't like it so much, but it seems like a fair review, and does not go over the same old ground that normally forms Woody criticisms:
It's a highbrow romantic farce, without the laughs.
Ebert likes it. Just.
"You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger" is every frame a Woody Allen film, but it isn’t very much more.
