"...Viscously funny....Mr. Allen writes outstandingly acerbic dialogue....The best one-liners, like the whole film, mix melancholy with self-knowledge..."

"A caustic study, edited with staccato rhythms....The message, it seems, is that great art does not come without a cost."
Upon returning in glory to the college from which he was expelled, sexually voracious and dyspeptic writer Harry Block can find no companions for his trip--except, that is, for a hooker he's hired. The trouble with Harry, as it were, is that he's alienated everyone in his life, from a string of wives and psychotherapists to all his living relatives, by rehashing their dirty little secrets in his fatuous, mean-spirited writing. A new height of self-loathing for introspective auteur Allen, who meditates upon a self-reflection theme based on Bergman's WILD STRAWBERRIES.
