Rifkin's Festival

Director: Woody Allen
Year Released: 2020
Rating: 1.5

Professor Mort (Wallace Shawn) accompanies his publicist wife Sue (Gina Gershon) to a film festival in San Sebastián where he suspects she's having an affair with a director (Louis Garrel), so he tries to have an escapade himself with a pretty cardiologist (Elena Anaya).  Here we have Mr. Allen purely on Auto-Pilot, concentrating a tiny bit of energy on recreating famous movies (like Citizen Kane, 8½, Jules and Jim, Persona, etc.) - with the 'jealousy angle' tossed in rather haphazardly - and most of the one-liners get lost in the delivery (although this made me giggle: "My shrink says I'm attracted to women who will hurt me").  His late period pictures, while not as outstanding as his early-or-mid career work, have been mostly decent (I strongly recommend his limited series on Amazon Prime, Crisis in Six Scenes) but this, in particular, is one to write off.
