I've never disagreed so strongly with seemingly widespread opinion like this before (not with it being negative and me being positive anyway), but I do disagree. With just about every criticism levelled at this wonderful film, which ended up being one of my favorites of 2000. I thought all of it - the acting, the directing, the cinematography, the story - everything about this film, was excellent. The unfairness of the frequent personal attacks aside (like against Richard Gere, or Allison Burnett, or any of the other talent involved in this film), I think the majority of complaints about this film are just mass negative-bandwagon jumping (and maybe some sort of Hollywood political idiocy). I'm a guy, and I normally don't like "chick flicks" at all, but I loved this one, and it was the first one I remember that got to me emotionally since "Terms of Endearment" back in 1983. It works in spades. If you haven't seen it yet, go into it with an open mind and don't let what seems to be mass opinion sway you before the initial credits roll. Judging from my own personal experience and acquaintances, there are plenty of folks that adore this film, they're just not as vocal.
If I have any complaint about the film at all, it's with the editing mangling that MGM enforced on the film just prior to its semi-troubled release. It's quite readily apparent, even to the untrained eye. I sincerely wish I could one day see this movie as it was intended, via some Director's Cut release or such, even if I know that's not likely at this point.Read more ›
On its beautiful surface, Autumn in New York is a typical romance. From the colors-all golden-red (leaves), plum-colored (dresses, sweaters), warm orange (lamps), subtle charcoal grays, elegant blacks, rich ivories, and crystalline whites-to the pale beauty of the ingenue (Charlotte), often the brightest image on the screen and therefore the place to which our eye is naturally drawn. Will with his thick silver mane, mature good looks and urbane way, complements her perfectly. But this is a subtle, sly film and not everything is what it seems. The director (Chen) tells us as much in a brief transition scene when a briskly walking Charlotte slows to ask an elderly woman on the street if she needs help shortly after we have seen Charlotte herself collapse in the previous scene. Charlotte is a woman-child contradiction, sometimes having more in common with the children (her bedtime-story butterfly scene) of Will's contemporaries than with Will himself ("I'm a creep. You're a kid.").
The story and dialogue are spiced with irony and delicious inversions. Charlotte for all her seemingly naïve "wow"ness seems to control the outcome of most events planned by Will. In their first extended conversation (on the phone) he points out that she says "wow" an awful lot. ("You're all grown up now. When is that going to stop.") But when she emerges from the limo in a gown he bought for their date, it is his turn to say "wow." (You will too when you see Ryder in the dress).Read more ›
