    Film interessante, a metà tra il documentario-biografia romanzata e la commedia ironica e leggera.
    Un Penn in ottima forma, simpatico, patetico, odioso e tronfio, sfaccettato all'inverosimile.
    Unica nota marginalissima stonata: l'ostinato voler inquadrare le dita che suonano la chitarra. A primo acchitto affascina, me poi si capisce che è tutto finto e l'insistere diviene fastidioso.
    Nell'insieme un buon film anche se tra i meno scoppiettanti di Allen.
