    Simultaneously mean-spirited and self-deprecating, Deconstructing Harry is Allen at his most misanthropic. The problem is that it is, in spite of itself, one of Allen's more interesting and compelling dramas, only taken through such a two-dimensionally sour vein, given its characters. Despite having individual sketches that are actually quite funny, this is the Allen movie where all the bad things people say about him are very true. Expand

  1. This poisonous, brazenly autobiographical comedy shows off the best of Mr. Allen's misanthropic humor.
  2. 75
    It's a movie of moments, some of which are side-splittingly funny. Arguably, this is the most uproarious comedy that Allen has ever done.
  3. 60
    A fever dream about an aging, grasping, neurotic artist who brings his disastrous personal life, thinly veiled, into his work and ends up as a grotesque caricature of himself, alienating everyone who ever loved him.
