[4.75/10] Wonder Wheel (2017)

Wonder Wheel (2017)

Quick Review: One of Allen's worst efforts, for a movie with such a title "Wonder Wheel" has zero wonder about itself apart from a few visual tricks, though the overuse of color saturation, fuzzy filters, and radiant lighting make the 1950s tone of the film feel forced and kinda fabricated. Moreover, even the mostly spot-on casting can't mask the corniness of its formulaic 'love triangle' plot about rivalry, jealousy, and manipulation. Winslet shines, but Timberlake feels awkwardly out-of-place.
