Filmografia

La Trama:

Edipo relitto (Woody Allen) è l'ultimo dei tre episodi: racconta le disavventute di Sheldon Mills, un noto avvocato, è in cura dallo psicanalista. Oggetto dei suoi problemi è la vecchia madre, che non gradisce la sua fidanzata Lisa, il suo nuovo cognome (Wasp) e il suo stesso aspetto. Sheldon esprime il desiderio di vederla scomparire. Durante uno spettacolo di magia cinese, l'anziana donna si volatilizza e Sheldon appare soddisfatto. Poco dopo, tuttavia, il volto della donna appare nel cielo di New York. La madre racconta a tutta la città pettegolezzi e problemi della vita di Sheldon. L'uomo, che vede naufragare il rapporto con Lisa, si rivolge a Treva, una veggente, ma senza risultato. Tra i due nasce però un'intesa che la madre di Sheldon approva. La donna decide quindi di tornare dal figlio.

 

New York Stories (New York Stories):

3 storie brevi, filmate da 3 assi europei della fotografia (Almendros, Storaro, Nykvist), che hanno un solo sfondo (New York) e un tema comune: la forza dei sentimenti. La pala migliore del trittico è "Lezioni di vita" di Scorsese, ideale continuazione di Fuori orario (1985). Elegante, piacevole, futile "La vita senza Zoe" di Coppola, favola gentile sui figli privilegiati di gente ricca e famosa, mentre il più divertente anche se un po' prolisso è "Edipo re-litto" in cui Allen è un avvocato soffocato da una terribile mom ebraica da barzelletta che s'appresta a sposare una divorziata con tre figli.

  • At 33 minutes, Francis Ford Coppola's segment is the shortest. Woody Allen's clocks in at 40 minutes, while Scorsese's runs to 45 minutes.

  • The performance piece that Steve Buscemi delivers in the Martin Scorsese segment was conceived and written by the actor himself.

RECENSIONI

Recensione da "Il Mereghetti 2000":

Un film nato a tavolino, su un'idea solo produttiva,  discontinuo nei suoi risultati: l'episodio di Scorsese, ispirato ai diari di polina Suslova, giovane amante di Dostoevskij, è di gran lunga il migliore, un piccolo gioiello tutto concentrato sulla fisicità della creazione artistica, che sposa in maniera perfetta musica (l'indimenticabile "A Whiter Shade of Pale" dei Procol Harum) e immagine: Scorsese at his best; con brevi apparizioni di Deborah Harry e Peter Gabriel. Quello di coppola è una sciocchezzuola scritta assieme alla figlia Sofia e vorrebbe avere un risvolto sociale (la contrapposizione tra ricchi e poveri); il padre Carmine appare nella parte di un suonatore di strada. Allen dirige una variazione sui suoi soliti temi, a tratti divertente ma non irresistibile.
