Woody Allen’s ‘Crisis in Six Scenes’ is a big waste of time

Crisis in Six Scenes is set during the turbulent ’60s in America, and centres on a middle class suburban family who is visited by a guest (Miley Cyrus), who turns their household completely upside down. (Depending on the citation, it might also be “90 percent of life”, but you get the idea.) For Woody agnostics, this can be easily twisted into a criticism – no matter his dwindling cultural profile, Allen continues to churn out new product at a prodigious clip, and the industry keeps on rewarding him with Oscar nominations (three this decade) and substantial financial payouts. So, here I am, acknowledging that it happened; redirecting you to an excellent piece about the fraught issue; disclosing that I personally think he’s a creep; and promising to do my best to leave all that out of these recaps of Allen’s new TV show, Crisis In Six Scenes.Robert Lloyd (Los Angeles Times): “As may be said of Allen’s remarkably prolific and long-lived film career, it has its better and worse, its sharper and duller points; but as the work that has returned Elaine May to public view, it can only be welcomed, with rose petals and trumpets”. The dialogue is stilted, the performances are awkward and most scenes go on twice as long as they should, as if that was the only way Allen could fill enough time for six episodes. I stopped and I noticed, ‘Who is this kid? To be blunt, Crisis in Six Scenes is bad.Woody Allen doesn’t know how to make TV, nor does he care to learn This is kind of fun, though. “Allen might ponder that for future TV projects, but in the meantime, we’ll happily wallow in the inspired silliness of ‘Crisis'”.John Magaro and Rachel Brosnahan are Alan and Ellie, a young engaged couple.Also, Lennie is played by Miley Cyrus.
