Saw this with the wife. Four sketches, interwoven. We thought the story on celebrity was brilliant in concept, more than adequate in presentation. It would have made a good Charlie Chaplin silent. There was a bit too much slapstick in some sketches for my taste. Outstanding acting, though, and a visual treat. The general theme in my view was the power of seduction. Rome is like that. The power of one sketch's seduction was a little thinly presented, but OTOH both of the central characters in that sketch were seduced or almost seduced. As with many of Allen's movies, the US characters may be caricatures of Manhattanites in the 1%, or may be accurate!?
