"Café Society"

Saw "Café Society" last night. Kristen Stewart is radiant. Jesse Eisenberg essentially plays a Woody Allen stand-in (more confidently than Woody Allen would have played it back in the early days). There was one echo of the early days - the Jewish hooker scene.

After the movie, I started talking to folks near me in the theater. One guy hungered for more emotion. I pointed out Stewart got quite flustered and upset at one point. "Yes, she gets close," he said, but I interjected "But you still want blood on the floor." "Yes," he said, "I want to SEE it!" Then one of his friends added, "But then it wouldn't be a Woody Allen film." Perfect response!

Loved the locations and loved the cinematography!
