Audio/ Visual ideas & goings on.
Woody Allen has created a good basis for a film with “Midnight In Paris”, exploring the traits of artists and how they never feel they are in the right era, one was always born too late, that kind of thing. A really charming idea and nicely executed, however it did feel like it was lacking, mainly I feel because of the lead, Owen Wilson. Not a very convincing bohemian artist type wanting to “walk Paris in the rain”. Instead you get some washed out performance by an unbelievable protagonist. The back story of said lead makes no sense and ruins the otherwise charming nature of the script. Still it made me think and smile, so all’s well I suppose.
