Woody Allen, Real Estate Pornographer

Woody Allen's new movie has a very special appeal, notes critic A.O. Scott:

Which brings me to the real reason to appreciate Mr. Allen, which is as an unrivaled pornographer. I'm not talking about sex; there is some bed-hopping in "Melinda and Melinda," but the camera always stops at the bedroom door. These days, in any case, the kind of New Yorkers likely to see a Woody Allen movie reserve their true lust for real estate, and the long hallways, high ceilings and open kitchens on display in this movie are likely to keep local audiences sighing and moaning for the full 99 minutes. · Woody and Woody, Tragic and Comic [NYTimes]
