I liked it. But Match Point, Crimes and Misdemeanors, and an Irrational Man are better Woody Allen movies covering similar subject matter.

Woody Allen trying to be Dostoevsky again, with the usual bad results. I like the actors here, Colin Farrell and Sally Hawkins especially, but Allen's script and direction are so lifeless that it's hard to get through this movie. There's no suspense, very little drama in the character's interactions, and the surprise ending is hardly a surprise. Avoid.

An excellent, but dark, movie very similar to "Match Point".

Fantastic ! A story and ending I couldn't predict. It had my attention all the way through.

I was amazed at how unexciting Cassandra's Dream was. It never caught my interest. There was nothing remotely good about it. Considering it is a Woody Allen picture, this movie is a huge disappointment.

Woody Allen meets Hitchcock. lots of irony, good suspense, great dialogue, carefully planned camera shots, an homage to
Shakespearean and Greek tragedy. Works on many levels. Worthy of repeat viewings

I was disappointed by this one. I thought the cast was great but the storyline was not. Don't bother watching. Maybe it had something to do with Woody Allen as director...

Confirms every suspicion you have ever had that Woody Allen is an over-rated hack. Apparently he has been watching a lot of British TV. To understand fully what a poor writer of dialogue he has become, just turn on the subtitles. Ian. Terry. Ian. Terry. Ian. Terry. Ian. Terry.
